Is really matplotlib this slooow for displaying images ? (sorry again)

I am using:

IPython 0.6.6 with Python 2.3.3 and matplotlib-0.65

(checked that this is indeed the case)

P.S.: by the way, just to let you know (and I will pass the message on
the forum) I am sincerely very impressed by matplotlib in general
(in fact 5 people just switched to it in the last 2 weeks and our group
only amounts to 10 people so 1/2 still to convince!). So this
kind of ''negative'' feedback/question should not undermine the
rest of the soft for sure!!!
