This looks odd; one possibility is that you are mixing your numerix
packages.  Check you matplotlib rc setting.  If you are using a recent
scipy built on top of a recent numpy, you should setting you numerix
setting to numpy -- see http://matplotlib.sf.net/matplotlibrc

Alternatively, just use the matplotlib numerix namespace to insure
consistency

from pylab import plot, show, savefig, nx
t = nx.arange(0, 2.0, 0.1)
plot(t)
savefig('test.png')
