Aha.  Thanks for diagnosing the problem.  Should be fixed in the
latest ezplot I just uploaded to pypi.  ("easy_install --upgrade
ezplot"  if you have easy_install).

Hmm.  Yeh my error reporting is quite weak.

Yeh, me too.  I've never used setuptools before, or distributed any
python code but it's really easy to whip up a dist (at least when the
code is 100% python).  Twisted and matplotlib are great too.  Wouldn't
have been able to do this in a month without those two,
let alone a day.

After using it for a few days I've been really happy with the results
myself.   Better error messages would be nice, but I'm finding it very
nice to be able to pop up plots whenever and wherever I want while
debugging.  And they stay up even after the debugee goes away, which
is also pretty nice.
