Thanks for the info.  I tried to reproduce your same setup on a fresh  
Parallels windows XP image:
- installed python 2.4.3 enthought edition
- downloaded and installed ETS (enthought-1.1.0 win32 py2.4.
- grab zoomed_plot directory from https://svn.enthought.com/svn/ 
- put zoomed_plot directory into c:\python24\lib\site-packages 

Having done this, the two_plots example runs fine, as do the other  
demos. save_plot.py is using a deprecated class right now so it's  
probably a little broken anyways.

I *am* able to run the zoom_plot.py example.

I've not changed my PYTHONPATH or anything.

I will keep thinking about what the problem might be...
