Well, I'm afraid that all I can say is 'works for me'... My emacs
config (on unbuntu 10.04, emacs v 23.1.50) just has this:

;; Basic call: this will get the system running in default mode.
(require 'ipython)

;; Configure the ipython call for pylab use
(setq py-python-command-args '("-pylab" "--colors" "LightBG"))

And it works fine, actually both with ipython 0.10.1 (from the branch)
and with 0.11 trunk.

But it may be an issue under windows, I honestly don't know.
