Do you get this error in non-*plt code? If so, we should worry about it, but
if it's only being triggered by *plt code, I'm not sure it warrants spending
preciously scarce resources, giving that in the new scipy, *plt are going to
disappear. There is pretty much consensus that matplotlib will take care of
plotting and scipy will drop the old, unmaintained *plt modules.
