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)
