Comment(by Deil.Christoph@…):

 I have the same problem with ipython. Actually the ipython prompt is

 $ /opt/local/bin/ipython-2.6
 /site-packages/IPython/utils/rlineimpl.py:96: RuntimeWarning: Leopard
 libedit detected - readline will not be well behaved including some
 crashes on tab completion, and incorrect history navigation. It is highly
 recommended that you install readline, which is easy_installable with:
 'easy_install readline'
 Python 2.6.7 (r267:88850, Nov  8 2011, 12:13:06)
 Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

 IPython 0.11 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
 ?         -> Introduction and overview of IPython's features.
 %quickref -> Quick reference.
 help      -> Python's own help system.
 object?   -> Details about 'object', use 'object??' for extra details.

 Same warning and broken prompt whether I use ipython from MacPorts of the
 git master.

 Any workaround / fix from this from the Macports or Ipython side?
 Should I file a new ticket?
