It looks like you are trying to start IPython without actually
installing it, and this is likely to cause problems for things that
fire off subprocesses.

The 'ipython.py' script only works as a quick, zero-install way to
start the terminal-based ipython. If you want to use any of IPython's
more advanced features, you *must* actually install IPython after you
download it.
