It is very possible that this problem was fixed shortly after the 1.0.0 release. Another possibility is that ipython might be causing an issue where it is loading some older matplotlib codes before the rest of matplotlib 1.0.0 is loaded (I have seen this happen once).
You can test for this theory by seeing if you have the same problem when using the regular python shell. If not, then it is likely to be a problem with ipython. If you do have the same problem in regular python, then the problem is with matplotlib and you will need to build the latest from svn.

I was wondering if you ever found a solution to this problem ?
I have the exact same issue with GTK (Agg or cairo) and WX backends
… I’m also under gentoo using ipython-0.10.1 and matplotlib-1.0.0
I don’t have the warnings you have but same behavior, I have to call
show (if I don’t a blank ‘frozen’ window is all that appears) but then
the ipython doesn’t have control anymore.
