Bug Description

The bug is maybe related to bug #264587,
On OSX 10.4, when I start ipython-0.9.1 and I hit ALT +,
which enters some non-ASCII characters and hit return.
I get:
----------------------------------------

WARNING:

The CPython behaves differently:

I can't confirm it in IPython 0.10.2 nor in 0.11. But this bug tracker is closed, all IPython bugs are now tracked at

https://github.com/ipython/ipython/issues

so if you continue seeing this with the 0.11 series (currently git HEAD), please let us know at github.

Thanks!
