MacOS X backend broken

Hello,

I updated to svn r8396 today, and the MacOSX backend is broken. The following code

import matplotlib
matplotlib.use('MacOSX')
import matplotlib.pyplot as mpl

fig = mpl.figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(1,1,1)
fig.canvas.draw()

produces the following error:

  File "/Users/tom/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/lines.py", line 522, in draw
    gc.set_alpha(self._alpha)
TypeError: a float is required

I have submitted a bug report with full error transcript here:

https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3013440&group_id=80706&atid=560720

Cheers,

Tom

Tom,

Thanks. I don't see anything MaxOSX backend-specific about this, though, and I can't reproduce it here on Linux. Did you do a clean build and install, deleting the build directory and the previous installation?

Aha! I see the problem: _macosx is overriding the GraphicsContextBase.set_alpha. This is easy to fix. Coming shortly.

Committed in 8398. Please let me know if it fixes the problem, and if any other problems crop up.
