0.87 on HP-UX 11.23/PA with Python 2.4.2

We've built 0.87 with Python 2.4.2/GCC 3.4.3 on Solaris, HP-UX, Tru64
UNIX, IRIX, and Redhat Linux. It works fine on all platforms except
HP-UX/PA (HP-UX 11.23/IA64 works fine). Some of the examples, like
two_scales.py, work fine if run once. However, with
~/.matplotlib/ttffont.cache existing, a second run of two_scales.py
(or any other example), fails with the following:
  terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Py::RuntimeError'

Anyone have any ideas?
