Yes, you saw that.

We have not fixed the issue. But, it is only an issue with
matplotlib/traits. If you are developing your own wxpython code you
definitely should use dev trunk and look at the %gui magic. We also
have some details about how it works in the nightly docs. The dev
version is *much* more stable that 0.10 for this type of thing.
Let us know how it goes.
