Thank you for the references.. The problem with the need to loop over 
xplt.pyg_pending(), is
specific to IDLE. The problem with plt and xplt is that they don't leave 
happily with IDLE, which
is my favorite (I have experience with with pycrust and Ipython). Is 
there any workaround
or this is a fundamental issue of Tkinter?
