I had this same question when I worked on Quicken.com. I wrote to IRS and got a written answer which I'll try to dig up and post here.

Investing in a stock you sell at a loss in a taxable account within 30 days does NOT create a wash sale if you repurchase the same stock within your IRA, was the answer we got. I'll see if I can find the letter.
