You said this earlier, but just to double check: this is repeatable with
simply 'ipython --pylab'? The notebook and the Qt console do use network
interfaces (only loopback, by default), so it's vaguely conceivable that
they could be influenced by a wifi connection. But plain terminal IPython
doesn't do anything that involves the network, and AFAIK neither does
pylab, so I'm mystified as to what it could be.

Is it possible that it's trying to load some files off a network drive, and
it can do so quicker with one wifi connection than another?
