It runs ok from source.

Thinking about how it stopped working, and after your suggestions, I 
think there's something that has to be said.

When I try to run my existing IPython Qt Console, the first two output 
lines are:


A couple of hours ago I was testing a little script from inside Sublime 
Text editor. I saved that script in my home dir with the name path.py 
(notice something yet?) and the output of that script was exactly:


I'm very new to python and of course IPython, but... I don't think this 
is merely a coincidence.

Maybe that script got saved somewhere else (or maybe a .pyc) and it's 
interfering with the real path.py that IPython is trying to import?
