Hi Gary, just to make sure we're clear. The last version of
matplotlib released was 0.61.0. Is this what you mean, or are you

There is a known bug in the ps backend on win32 that was discussed
here a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately, it has a trivial fix. In
site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_ps.py, in the encodeTTFasPS
function, replace the line
font = file(fontfile)
font = file(fontfile, 'rb')
Windows cares a lot about that binary flag.
Please let me know if this cures what ails you, because we are getting
ready to release the next matplotlib version and I hate to release
code with known bugs.
