Recently I was trying to diagnose a segfault in Charlie’s win32 release candidate, and was using dependency walker to step through the _tkagg.pyd binary in the egg, and noticed all kinds of funky DLLs that based on their name I did not know why they were getting linked in (netapi32.dll, dnsapi32.dll, ieframe.dll). It looks like tk is bringing in a bunch of internet related stuff, and maybe one of these is doing something to launch the calendar. Never seen it before though…

is a really strange bug report we had from an ipython/pylab user on
Windows. I don’t have the foggiest idea of how his opening of
matplotlib with Tk under Windows could open a calendar. I don’t have
windows to test on, but if anyone here has seen this (the problem is
only seen with MPL) or has any clue, I’d be very grateful for ideas.
