this appears to be a result of __name__ being lost:

/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/IPython/core/interactiveshell.pyc in magic(self, arg_s, next_input)
   1892                 self._magic_locals = sys._getframe(1).f_locals
   1893             with self.builtin_trap:
-> 1894                 result = fn(magic_args)
   1895             # Ensure we're not keeping object references around:

   1896             self._magic_locals = {}

/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/IPython/core/magic.pyc in magic_run(self, parameter_s, runner, file_finder)
   1587             # Run in user's interactive namespace

   1588             prog_ns = self.shell.user_ns
-> 1589             __name__save = self.shell.user_ns['__name__']
   1590             prog_ns['__name__'] = '__main__'
   1591             main_mod = self.shell.new_main_mod(prog_ns)

KeyError: '__name__'

oops -- github markup has chewed up the variable names here. they should be

__name__
rabbitmcrabbit

nope, i'm still not getting the hang of this yet...
__name__ is the problem variable above.

Thanks for the catch - reset is definitely being too aggressive here.

When doing a big code paste, you can just wrap it in a <pre> tag, so it won't interpret anything as formatting.

I think this should be fixed in my big Usermod PR (#648): https://github.com/ipython/ipython/pull/648/files#L2R1103
