1.3 + xkcd + latex

It does not work when |text.usetex| is True (when using external TeX).
But in that case, it should have thrown an exception:

It appears that latex doesn't work with xkcd?

I put for example:
         self.ax.set_xlabel ('$E_s/N_0

)

Which go rendered with the '

  signs and not as latex

And my vertical axis was labeled as:

$\mathdefault{10^{3}}$ ...

Strange. I don't have anything about usetex in the script, or in my
.matplotlibrc - all it has is:

backend : Qt4Agg
mathtext.fontset: stix

Puzzling. Do you have a matplotlibrc in the current working directory?
