Package: python3-zmq
Version: 17.1.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Maybe I'm missing some important point and maybe this does not concern 
python3-zmq, I report my issue anyway.

Just after successfull "aptitude install pypy3"
I tried to (system-wise) install ipython kernel for pypy3 and got the error 
below reported.

# pypy3 -m ipykernel install -name pypy3 -display-name PyPy3 && echo OK
Traceback (most recent call last):
