It looks like your Numeric install is screwed up. Remove
site-packages Numeric to be on the safe side and grab the latest
release for your python version at

  http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy

reinstall and see if that fixes your problem. Let me know...

I'm sorry to report no change. I uninstalled Numeric and matplotlib, and reinstalled both, and nothing has changed. Am I the only one suffereing from this? Isn't this impossible?

I tried this several times. I uninstalled using the Control Panel Add and Remove feature, and then trashed the remaining directory. I searched the registry for lurking remnants (there was a mention of an uninstaller and .matplotlibrc. that's all. I left those entries alone.) I checked .matplotlibrc... nothing obviously unusual, just numerix:Numeric. A week ago I did a virus scan on the whole system, and ran spybot. (I'll probably run those again tonight for good measure.) The version of Numeric that I installed is 23.6, the latest. I'm using python 2.3.4

I changed axes.py to remove 'min' from the 'from numerix import ...' line.

Now it chokes on the very next line,
from numerix import max as nxmax

... and happy holidays.
