I've made some testing (not exhaustive) of matplotlib under IDLE and pycrust on win32 and linux platforms. matplotlib seems to be more tolerant then xplt, especially when show() is called instead of using the interactive mode. The linux environment seems to work a bit better then the win32.

There is a project (not very active nowadays) called glplot (glplot.sf.net) which fills a shortcoming of gnuplot of generating false colour map of large matrices (gnuplot is too slow here). Could the solution be a library/utility that is spawned as a separate process and use some (simple) interprocess communication (ala gnuplot/glplot)? Is there a portable alternative way to run a multiple message-loops under the same process?
