Try rm -rf ing your build directory and your site-packages/matplotlib
directory and do a clean rebuild and reinstall. We've seen a lot of
problems not too different from yours when installing recent versions
of matplotlib over older versions. If you're still encountering
troubles, post back and we'll try something different.

matplotlib certainly works with Numeric 23.1. I would advise you to
upgrade to the latest Numeric because many bugs have been fixed since
23.1, but it won't stop matplotlib from working.
