[AstroPy] Curious bug in Pywcs?

Thank you for your tests.

I was at home, with packages from debian testing (python 2.6 and 
matplotlib-1.0.1-3) and I reproduce the bug. I use Qt4Agg. Indeed, GTKAgg 
reproduces the bug but Agg and TkAgg don't. So, I will switch to another 
backend.

The output of Valgrind is verbose, I will print only the last lines. I've used 
the option --leak-check=full.

For a working backend (TkAgg):
