Great, I just put it in CVS.  Many thanks!

Indeed!  So it seems like the little matrix you sent yesterday now reads:

            linux        win32     OSX
     GTK* : good         good	  good
     WX*  : good         good      good
     TK*  : good         good      good


I think I'm actually going to make a 0.6.4 release with these fixes, since 
making this functionality useful across the board is worth it IMO.  After the 
warm reception the ipython+matplotlib combo got at scipy, it would be nice to 
give users something that really works across all platforms.

Again, many thanks for this: you know if it were up to me the win32 bug would 
have lingered forever.
