ipython + gnu emacs on windows

Has anyone managed to get ipython within gnu emacs (21.3.1) working on
Windows XP?

I've the following versions of required software
Python 2.4.1
IPython 0.6.15
python-mode.el (defconst py-version "$Revision: 4.63 $"

I have also installed other ancilliary packages (per

Now when i do M-x py-shell, I get to the ipython shell with a bizarre
prompt as follows

^A^BIn [^A^B1^A^B]: ^A^B
^A^BIn [^A^B1^A^B]: ^A^B?
---Return to continue, q to quit---

If I type '?' without quotes as shown above, I get a single line

Also any errors are not reported on the screen.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help
