[AstroPy] bouncing balls problem in EPD 7.3-2

I went through the Python 4 Astronomers website last summer to learn python. At that time, I took the route of installing EPD (32-bit OSX version) on my MacBook Pro and working with that. It went well.
This year, I am interested in using Python in a Computational Physics course and so I was installing EPD 7.3-2 on my Mac. I have discovered that I now have an odd problem where the bounce.py script from
no longer runs properly in 'ipython -pylab'. Instead of animating the motion of the balls, the script seems to hang for a moment, then displays what appears to be the last frame of motion of the balls. I have confirmed this behavior for EPD 7.3-2 (32-bit OSX) installed under Lion and Mountain Lion. Was there a recent change to Python that would have propagated through EPD 7.3-2 and could be affecting these animations?
