Using '%s' in the beginning of a line in a triple quote string is replaced by a '_ip.magic("s ")' which is not converted then in string substitution.

The problem :

In [3]: print """
%s
"""

_ip.magic("s ")

In [9]: print """
%s
""" % "fooo"
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)

/home/bancal/<ipython console> in <module>()

TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting

What was expected :

>>> print """
... %s
... """

%s

>>> print """
... %s
... """ % "fooo"

fooo

Thanks for the bug report. We're actually just days away from releasing IPython 0.11, which doesn't have this problem. So it's not going to get fixed in the 0.10 series.
