# Well, it's documented that '__builtins__' can be either a dictionary

Normally, IPython sets sys.excepthook to a CrashHandler instance, so if
any app directly invokes sys.excepthook, it will look to the user like
IPython crashed. In order to work around this, we can disable the
CrashHandler and replace it with this excepthook instead, which prints a
