I also tried ipython 0.11 and ipython 0.13.dev, but couldn't get the qtconsole to work at all with either.
Anyone experiencing the same issue? Any ideas what could cause it?
Also, is there a way to switch off the tooltips on typing "(", so I can work for now?
I am using the shell ipython for now, but it becomes very unresponsive after importing anything from mayavi.
The qtconsole remains nice and snappy, but it's not much use if it crashes everytime I hit "(" ...
Re: ipython qtconsole segmentation fault when displaying calltips / tooltips?
Thanks for your reply. Disabling the calltips works for now and will allow me to get some work done...
My problem seems indeed the same as pshchelo's on issue #1407, which I didn't stumble upon when googling. (Although I am also new to Mac, my installation is relatively clean since I used homebrew and pip for everything - I only started uninstalling and reinstalling when trying to get qtconsole to work...)
So I could reproduce his demonstration and hopefully narrow it down a bit further. So in fresh ipython qtconsole's, doing:
from numpy import cos
cos( -> works every time
from numpy import sin
sin( -> segfaults every time
Maybe there is some particularity in the docstrings of the failing functions that triggers the bug?
