I didn't have any problems using the plt module, it works fine. I found
the module when I was looking for a "autoticker". I have just finished a
"SVG wrapper" in python and I am trying to test it by creating some
plots. I used the autoticker for defining the axis.  SVG is the new w3c
standard for vector graphics. It's a very easy way of creating plots and

Whether that was ever used, I'm not sure.  Your right though.  The test
for None is better and much safer.  In this case, it isn't causing any
problems (besides aesthetics).  The plt module has rarely been accused
of "elegance."  Hopefully the 2nd cut will make Audry Hepburn envious.

found the root of the problem?
