I'm not sure if this is by design or a problem:
In a pylab session, if I repeatedly call imshow with the same image, memory increases each time.
This does not happen if i go the 'Artists' way (fig = .., ax = fig.add---, im = ax.imshow)
Is there a way to avoid memory consumption like this in the pylab style?
Even a clf() does not release the memory.
My config is the latest Enthought distribution in 32-bit mode for MacOS.
