I'm sorry for your trouble.  The problem is that you are trying to learn 
SciPy during a time of large changes.  The core library that SciPy uses 
has been changed and a lot of developer time is being spent on fixing 
scipy to use the new core library.

Thus, most of the developers are leaving 0.3.2, and problems are not 
getting fixed.  

A few pointers:

-gui_thread is not being maintained so I would not try using it. 

A better solution is to use xplt or to download matplotlib and use it 
for plotting.

The scipy tutorial available at www.scipy.org is still valid for 0.3.2, 
I would look at that first.  

Good luck.
