[SciPy-dev] Possible bug

I recently tried installing Fernando Perez's iPython under win98 and
experienced a small problem, which he suggests might be a scipy problem.
in a Win98 DOS window running iPython starts displaying the help but
freezes the DOS window once a screenful of help is displayed.
If I run iPython from the IPython_shell.py shortcut and look at the
running processes, I note two:
python <- DOS shell
If I then type
I notice that the DOS window title changes from Python to GNUPLO~1 and
some gnuplot processes start up:
GNUPLO~1 <- DOS shell
The DOS window freezes up.
I don't know why gnuplot is starting.
The help> prompt system in iPython seems to work for other cases, so it
seems scipy specific. It's not a showstopper for me by any means.
