Unfortunately I upgraded both my machines to the new ubuntu version, and
both show the problem now. I used the same versions of ipython and
matplotlib on those machines successfully before. I can try to install
the previous version of ubuntu in a virtual machine, and try it again.

If I start ipython -pylab, pylab.rcParams contains 'backend': 'GTKAgg'.
I appended the output when building matplotlib below.
