Original Launchpad bug 514372: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/514372
Reported by: kghose (Kaushik Ghose).
To reproduce, simply execute
import multiprocessing as mp
manager = mp.Manager()
in both ipython and ipythonx
ipythonx hangs at the second command
Python 2.6.4 (r264:75821M, Oct 27 2009, 19:48:32)
Platform is Mac OS X (10.5.8) Darwin Kernel Version 9.8.0: Wed Jul 15 16:55:01 PDT 2009
With the new frontend system coming in 0.11, nobody's realistically going to work on ipythonx.
