I found out that my version of matplotlib (0.87.7) does not know all methods
that ezplot is expecting to be known. Thus init_pylab_methods raises an
Exception which was not visible because loggiong to the wx.TextCtrl does not
work - nothing is ever printed there.
I removed the unknown methods and now it works. Very nice work! Once more I am
really impressed by python (and good python programmers).
