Regarding version 0.13 dev and python 2.6, the ctrl-r search works fine in ipython but not in ipython qtconsole. Nothing happens ( i.e. no search dialog) when hitting Ctrl-r in qtconsole.

ctrl-r is a readline feature, and the qtconsole does not use readline (on any platform). This would need to be implemented from scratch.

The qtconsole has been moved to https://github.com/jupyter/qtconsole, and this issue had no activity for quite some time. If this is still relevant I would suggest this issue to be reopen on the above cited repository.

This will allow us to keep the number of IPython issues smaller and focussed on IPython. As currently there is an extremely high number of opened issues , it make it really hard to find if a problem is actually known, or going to be worked one.

Feel free to reopen if need, for the time being I'm going to close this.
