I'm using the prebuilt OS X dmg distribution of matplotlib with
the mac python 2.6.4 installation on os x
10.6.3. I find that if I try to use savefig to pdf format, my
program terminates with a bus error. There is no
such error if I save to eps format.

Gideon: did you ever figure this out? I have been using the EPD
python, and I get the same problem. Several incantations of EPD
do this, on both my macbook pro and mac pro.
