0.86.1 axis label position


With MPL 0.86.1:

plot([1,2,3]); xlabel("lala")

produces the xlabel on the leftmost side of the x-axis instead of in the center. Also

plot([1,2,3]); xlabel("lala", verticalalignment='center', horizontalalignment='center')

changes nothing. And even trying to put the label on the rightmost side

plot([1,2,3]); xlabel("lala", verticalalignment='center', horizontalalignment='right')

changes nothing.

I get this with GTKAgg and TkAgg. I found nothing regarding this problem
in my matplotlibrc (which is the one found in .../matplotlob/mpl-data) but the xxxalignment statements should override this anyway.

Does anyone have an idea?
