plotting from xemacs always 1 step behind

FWIW, everything's working correctly for me using
xemacs + ipython:

Xemacs 21.5
current svn snapshot of python-mode.el from
   http://sourceforge.net/projects/python
current ipython svn snapshot
Centos 5.1 and python 2.5.1

Works for me if invoked from xemacs shell as ipython -pylab.

If invoked from M-x py-shell doesn't work.

Now if I could just figure out where to modify the way py-shell invokes
ipython to add the -pylab. Doc say C-u M-x py-shell would prompt for args,
but the doc lies.

You can probably get help with this on the ipython mailing list.

I use:

(require `python-mode)
; for python-mode.el from http://sourceforge.net/projects/python
; If you are using the default emacs python-mode, comment out the following
; two lines
(setq py-shell-switch-buffers-on-execute nil)
(setq py-python-command-args '("-pylab" "-colors" "LightBG" "-p" "phil"))
(require `ipython)
