%reset by itself seems to be doing the trick for me without
needing all the commands in Robert's solution!

Incidentally, where is the %reset command documented? I've read through the 
parallel docs at
multiple times and can't seem to find it. It really seems a useful feature 
and even asks the user for confirmation, warning of data loss. Can this be 
executed from within scripts when these are called by ipython script.py from 
the command line?
