[IPython-User] qtconsole doesn't like long argument lists

Sorry to bring this up again (the previous post was snowed-under by other

In the qtconsole, when the input list for a function is very long, it
becomes unreadable in the "balloon help" feature of iPython.
Even when the list of input arguments has backslashes and is distributed
over several lines in the script, it shows up in the balloon help as one
long line, which disappears off the screen.
Would it be possible to include line breaks where the backslashes are used
in the argument list of the function?
Or some other solution (I know, function with question mark, but that
doesn't do a "balloon help").
