    Jeremy: That sometimes means you are importing a module into a
    different version of python than it was built against. Are you
    sure you are running Enthough python when you import matplotlib?

I'm pretty sure it's the Enthought python.

$ python --version
Python 2.5.2 |EPD Py25 4.1.30101|

Jeremy: Then unless you have DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH or PYTHONPATH set so that the wrong python libs or extensions are being picked up, it must be an EPD problem. I'd ask on the EPD list.

Oops. A long time ago I set PYTHONPATH in my bash_profile. The value for that is now wrong. Now that I’ve fixed it, everything seems to work fine.

Thanks for the help.
