Hi,

After some time busy with other stuff, I'd like to solve this issue and avoid
having to run my scripts in bare python.
How can I start debugging this? I am not in comfortable position, as I don't
know much about IPython's nor matplotlib's internals, but if given some pointers
and/or directions, I am willing to get my hands dirty.

I am running both ipython and matplotlib trunk versions, ubuntu 64 bits, python
2.6.6

Thanks in advance,

jorges
