We recently deprecated matplotlib.mlab.hist, and I am now hitting a
bug in numpy's historgram, which appears to be caused by the use of
"any" that does not exist in the namespace.  Small patch attached.
The example below exposes the bug:

Python 2.4.2 (#1, Feb 23 2006, 12:48:31)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 0.8.3.svn.r2876 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?         -> Introduction and overview of IPython's features.
%quickref -> Quick reference.
help      -> Python's own help system.
object?   -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.
