First of all, I'd like to thank matplotlib developers for providing us this wonderful library.
It's been a while now I'm using matplotlib and I'm pretty happy with it. I used to be a Linux user. Recently, I moved to Mac (a macbook pro, to be precise). I succeed to install matplotlib. Everything is working correctly except the export of figures into eps format (which is important when writing papers with LaTeX).
When I'm trying to save a figure in eps, everything seems ok. However, it is impossible to open the eps file. The eps seems to be corrupted. A closer look at the eps file shows that the generated file is 'heavy', i.e., several MB (around 6MB on average). Note that other output formats are correctly generated.
I don't really understand the source of the problem. Probably something that is misconfigured. If somebody has an idea on how to solve this problem, it would be great.
Here is further information on my configuration:

Thanks in advance for any kind of help
