[IPython-User] Why is iPython using X11?

There is another instance of the call to check_gtk which isn't changed in the patch, and it should IMHO. It is in line 1236 in Shell.py. It should also be 
            if th_mode == 'gthread':
                th_mode = check_gtk(th_mode)

(I would say the check for th_mode == 'gthread' could better be done in check_gtk.)

With this change I get rid of the X11 startup, unless I set the backend to something GTK-related of course.
