Hi Fernando,

Thanks for your reply. Disabling the calltips works for now and will allow
me to get some work done...

My problem seems indeed the same as pshchelo's on issue #1407, which I
didn't stumble upon when googling. (Although I am also new to Mac, my
installation is relatively clean since I used homebrew and pip for
everything - I only started uninstalling and reinstalling when trying to get
qtconsole to work...)

So I could reproduce his demonstration and hopefully narrow it down a bit
further. So in fresh ipython qtconsole's, doing:

from numpy  import cos
cos( -> works every time

from numpy import sin
sin( -> segfaults every time

Maybe there is some particularity in the docstrings of the failing functions
that triggers the bug?
