I've achieved the confusing state where if I launch python and type "import matplotlib" there are no problems but if I launch Ipython it fails to find matplotlib. How are the paths different and what did I do wrong in my build of matplotlib or ipython?
The paths for IPython should *not* be different, the most common cause
when this is seen is that one or more packages was installed against a
different Python than you are intending.
What Python are you using?

If you are using current system Python, you can use the Scipy
Superpack to get current IPython/numpy/scipy/matplotlib (or a subset
if you edit the script)
