Yes, that's it...

Mmh, that's super, super odd.  If I move mine out of the way,  I get:

maqroll[~]> ls ~/.ipython
/bin/ls: cannot access /home/fperez/.ipython: No such file or directory
maqroll[~]> ip

Do you really want to exit ([y]/n)?
maqroll[~]> ls ~/.ipython

So ~/.ipython does get re-created, but it should NOT be populated with
ipy_user_conf.py anymore.  Is it possible that you have a tangled-up
installation of ipytyhon with pieces of the old code?  I just don't
understand how that code can be active in your system...
