[IPython-User] Ipython on Windows - duplicate prompt

I see no problems when using python3.2, pyreadline2.0-dev1, and ipython 

I get one prompt on startup. If I enter a text that has several matches 
then I get a repeated prompt when tabcompleting (this is how it has 
always worked). See below for an example session.

I have no ideas on what could cause your problems. Do you have anything 
in your ipython startup or in script pointed to by PYTHONSTARTUP that 
could cause this?
