Error: This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way

This is not really appropriate for me, since I read some

So this has nothing to do with the ps save. The core problem is
exposed by

  from pylab import *
  plot([1,2,3])

with interactive false and no call to show. I traced the source of
the error message to binding the destroy event to the window.
Apparently the destroy is being called but the window is never shown.
By moving the destroy binding into the figure manager show method, all
appears to be fixed. Todd, you may want to look over this but I think
it's sound

Axel, try replacing the FigureManagerTkAgg code in
site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_tkagg.py with the following

class FigureManagerTkAgg(FigureManagerBase):
    """
    Public attributes

    canvas : The FigureCanvas instance
    num : The Figure number
    toolbar : The tk.Toolbar
    window : The tk.Window
    """

        FigureManagerBase.__init__(self, canvas, num)
        self.window = window
        self.window.withdraw()
        self.window.wm_title("Figure %d" % num)
        self.canvas = canvas
        self._num = num
        t1,t2,w,h = canvas.figure.bbox.get_bounds()
        w, h = int(w), int(h)
        self.window.minsize(int(w*3/4),int(h*3/4))
        if matplotlib.rcParams['toolbar']=='classic':
            self.toolbar = NavigationToolbar( canvas, self )
        elif matplotlib.rcParams['toolbar']=='toolbar2':
            self.toolbar = NavigationToolbar2TkAgg( canvas, self.window )
        else:

Hi John,

I looked over the diffs and they look fine; your analysis sounds
plausible to me. I'll try to reproduce the problem using the test
script and see if your fix removes it. If so, I'll go ahead and commit
the changes.

Hello John,

Axel, try replacing the FigureManagerTkAgg code in
site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_tkagg.py with the following

Perfect. Problem solved !

Best wishes and a merry Christmas,
