However, I thought I'd mention two items in case no one else has seen
1) There are a lot of Deprecation warnings on loading.
2) I can generate an X Window Error via a gdk crash. Here's the tail of

The program 'stats.py' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 4152 error_code 8 request_code 73 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
And here's the code. If you run it as is, it works fine (though the plot
is ugly.) However, if you uncomment the "set(gca(),...", it gives the
I've started using matplot in a script to auto-generate a report.
