[IPython-User] Tab auto-completion in ipdb

putting from ipdb import set_trace; set_trace() in the code gives me  
tab-autocompletion enabled debugging session. It seems it only works with  
terminal ipython though. (does not work in qtconsole)

You might want to use from IPython import embed; embed() instead, as it  
will just drop into an ipython session at that point. But it seems tab  
completion does not work in qtconsole in this case either.
