Two potential problems I see:

We no longer ship a pylab profile - rather, you start pylab mode with
the --pylab flag, or the %pylab magic command. You may have a pylab
profile from an older version, or you might have made one yourself,
but don't assume one is there. Run "ipython profile locate pylab" to

Profiles are not stored in .py files (they're folders, in fact). Have
you tried with profile='pylab' ?
