Only by a remarkable stroke of luck does it create a "correct" picture when
n=2 and m=2.  Try changing to n=1 and rerun the scilab code.  Or try
changing your grid size from the default of 100 to something even a little
larger, say 101 (i.e. add a third argument of 101 to the linspace commands,
adjust the initialization of z to "z=zeros(101,101)", and change the for
loop limits appropriately).  Your scilab plot will be a mess, like the one
I'm looking at right now.

Basically, the scilab code is bad, and you are recreating the bug in the
python code.
