bug for savefig to eps in the latest version of matplotlib

Dear all,

I recently update my matplotlib to the latest version, and found
pyplot.savefig to eps file didn't work well like previous version.
Test script:

···

==================================
#!/usr/bin/python -tt
from matplotlib.colors import LogNorm
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

# normal distribution center at x=0 and y=5
x = np.random.randn(100000)
y = np.random.randn(100000) + 5

plt.hist2d(x, y, bins=40, norm=LogNorm())
plt.colorbar()
#plt.show()
plt.savefig('test.eps')
#plt.savefig('test.png')

The result of plt.show() is just like the result of test.png, while
test.eps has a weired large file size (more than 20 MB in other case).
In the meantime, the facecolor for 'NaN' value in test.eps is black,
different from test.png and previous version. I consider it is a bug here.
How to reach the desired style (regular size, and white color for 'NaN'
value in image)? Thanks a lot.

as a test, can you activate the "classic" mode? I have a suspicion what
this bug is. Just add "import matplotlib; matplotlib.use('classic')" before
any plotting calls.

Dear Ben Root,

Thanks for your suggestions. Here, I used "plt.style.use('classic')",
but the created eps figure was still similar to previous one or even
larger... Incidentally, the matplotlibrc I used is the default
matplotlibc in my version 2.0.0.

The black is probably from a 0 alpha ending up in the output (which eps
does not support). I wonder where you think the bug is Ben, my guess is in
the image resampling code.

I was thinking it was possibly a change in background, but that would have
been tied to the style change. Since the bug is in both syles, my original
theory doesn't pan out.
