this may be a known problem (didn't find anything on this issue) but here it is:
- when I start a session with "ipython -pylab" I often get crashes with my
session. When I mean "often", it means really often like once everything 1/2h or
so. A crash means that the command I just sent gets stuck and the only way for
me to get it back is to kill the PID of the ipython process...
The problem is that it is almost impossible to reproduce a systematic behaviour
there so I cannot really send you a list of commands which results in a crash.
It just happens (often). However, after someone suggested it, I now enter
Ipython by a simple "ipython" and do immediately "from pylab import *". And then
I have NO crashes whatsoever.
any suggestion there? Is that normal?
