It seems the formatting RST in the pager doesn't happen all of the time.

  1. Start "ipython-qtconsole". Type "%guiref". The content of the pager shows raw reStructuredText.
  2. Start "ipython-qtconsole --pylab". Type "%guiref". The content of the pager has gone through rst to html conversion and has nice formatting.

why did you close this right away, Michael? It's a real issue :) (and actually, I know how to fix it)

Is it? I think this behavior is correct. Running 'ipython-qtconsole' with no arguments gives you the plain text widget. Now, maybe that it not a very sensible default in this day and age...

Well, I guess I meant that we were thinking of switching to the RT widget always by default, so this change of behavior wouldn't be seen in regular use...

That's very reasonable. Before I knew better, I thought there might be a real performance tradeoff between rich and plain text, but it doesn't seem to make a difference on the machines that I've used.

I'll fix this, probably this weekend.
