I tested some other things with ipython, and found that starting the 
qtconsole with pylab=qt also works with mayavi (QT_API=pyqt is still 

$ ipython qtconsole --pylab=qt

Doing this initializes the GUI loop correctly.  I don't see a way to 
start the qtconsole with the GUI loop but without pylab, though.
