I'm a quite new user of matplotlib - currently I'm working with
scikits.timeseries and ran into a problem with rendering plots.
I can draw scatter plots with dots ('.'), but when using lines ('-',
'--', or similar) the graph breaks when missing data occurs.
The best way to describe the problem would be an example:
I'm trying to render the first example from the page:
and what I get looks like the plotting was somehow 'stopped' after the
first occurence of a hole in the data:
After changing the marks to dots ('.') it renders like this (correctly):
I have searched a bit and found a bug with path.simplify, but setting
it to False doesn't change this behaviour.
I'm using matplotlib-0.99.1.1 from the Gentoo packages.
What can be the reason?
