[Numpy-discussion] matplotlib is breaking numpy

There is definitely something wrong with matplotlib/numpy. Consider the
following
>from numpy import *
>mydata=memmap('map.dat',dtype=float64,mode='w+',shape=56566500)
> del mydata

I can now remove the file map.dat with (from the command line) $rm map.dat

However
If I plot  mydata before the line
> del mydata


I can't get rid of the file until I exit python!!
Does matplotlib keep a reference to the data? How can I remove this
reference?
