True! But all of these demos do run for me. I suggest you flush your
existing matplotlib by removing site-packages/matplotlib and your
"build" directory and reinstall from the official source at
Please follow the instructions at
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/installing.html, eg make sure you
have numeric or numarray installed when you compile matplotlib.
Let us know if you have more troubles, and please include a full
traceback from one of the date demos and run it with
python date_demo1.py --verbose-helpful
and report the output.

It's a distutils thing. Suggestions here welcome.
