	Exactly, and the plt.image() problem is linked to this as well. So we 
are all happy now, and i have already put my head inside a bucket :-)

	However, it seems a bit harsh for plt.image() to segfault if 
gui_thread is nor imported, but looking at it, it looks as if it might 
be a complicated effort to have the plt. methods check whether 
gui_thread has been imported and if not, import it into the
