You can TRY the following:
ipython -pylab -tk
with the WXAgg backend. I doubt it will work, as the only person to ever
report it working is Prabhu, and I'm 50/50 on whether it's debian's good
threading lib support, or some dark powers granted to him by the python gods
for having written mayavi.
In Fedora, this always causes a crash, but in the odd chance it might work for
WinXP, this would solve your problems and let you keep WX.
If not, stick to TkAgg and be happy :)
