Do you get this error in non-*plt code?  If so, we should worry about it, but 
if it's only being triggered by *plt code, I'm not sure it warrants spending 
preciously scarce resources, giving that in the new scipy, *plt are going to 
disappear.  There is pretty much consensus that matplotlib will take care of 
plotting and scipy will drop the old, unmaintained *plt modules.
