I assume you are working with ipython CVS? Try replacing this code block

in IPython/Shell.py

# We need to detect at runtime whether show() is called by the user.

# For this, we wrap it into a decorator which adds a 'called' flag.

backend.draw_if_interactive = flag_calls(backend.draw_if_interactive)

# This must be imported last in the matplotlib series, after

# backend/interactivity choices have been made

try:

import matplotlib.pylab as pylab

self.pylab = pylab

self.pylab_name = 'pylab'

except ImportError:

import matplotlib.matlab as matlab

self.pylab = matlab

self.pylab_name = 'matlab'

with this

# This must be imported last in the matplotlib series, after

# backend/interactivity choices have been made

try:

import matplotlib.pylab as pylab

self.pylab = pylab

self.pylab_name = 'pylab'

except ImportError:

import matplotlib.matlab as matlab

self.pylab = matlab

self.pylab_name = 'matlab'

# We need to detect at runtime whether show() is called by the user.

# For this, we wrap it into a decorator which adds a 'called' flag.

self.pylab.draw_if_interactive = flag_calls(self.pylab.draw_if_interactive)

Does that help?
