I've written a python gui to matplotlib which allows the user to plot either cartesian, semi-log, or log-log plots. Log plots can be generated for typical base values except for base 2. Is this a bug, or is there some reason that matplotlib does not do log plots using base 2?

# log base 2 plots

Can you post an example which shows your problem? The following works for me:

In [14]: x, y = np.random.rand(2, 100)

In [15]: loglog(x, y, basex=2)

Out[15]: [<matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0x11a1a2d0>]
