1.1.1rc does not fix tight_layout for figtext?

I just tried 1.1.1rc to see if it fixed the tight_layout for figtext.

I have a semilogy plot, and add some lines of text on the bottom (and top):

        plt.figtext (0, 0, res['carriers'].values, horizontalalignment='left',
verticalalignment='bottom', size=5)
        plt.figtext (0.5, 1, self.pageno, horizontalalignment='left',
verticalalignment='top', size='x-small')
        ##plt.tight_layout(pad=1.0)
        plt.tight_layout()

The text on the bottom is overprinting the x axis - the same as happened with
the previous release.

I'm afraid that, unfortunately, it won't be fixed soon (if ever, as
far as I can tell).
What "tight_layout" does is to adjust the *subplot parameters* of the
figure so that the "subplots" fit in. Artists created with figtext
command is not affected by the subplot parameters, i.e. there is not
much thing we can do for these artists within the current
implementation. It would be better if some warning is printed in such
case (there are lots of cases that tight_layout will fail), but this
is not currently done.

Depending on your need, you may leave out some area for figtext when
you call "tight_layout". This is only supported for gridspec though.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.gridspec as gridspec

fig = plt.figure()

gs1 = gridspec.GridSpec(2, 2)
ax_list = [fig.add_subplot(ss) for ss in gs1]

fig.text (02, 0, "test", horizontalalignment='left',
          verticalalignment='bottom', size=5)
fig.text (0.5, 1, "01", horizontalalignment='left',
          verticalalignment='top', size='x-small')

gs1.tight_layout(fig, rect=[0, 0.03, 1, 0.97]) # adjust rect parameter
to make some room for figtext.
