This arises from a subtle, platform dependent problem with where the
wx backend instantiates a wxapp. Matt, I've reverted the wxapp
instantiation to the old place. I agree there is no logical reason
why it needs to be where it is, but as I indicated before, I ran into
troubles trying to do it the logical way. This is the trouble I was
referring to, but couldn't remember exactly what it was.
Because I'm leaving town today and want something stable for pycon, I
went ahead and rolled out a quick bug-fix release 0.73.1 with these
changes (and Fernando, you number patch got to slip in!).
To everyone who contributes code to mpl, particularly GUI code, please
test on win32 if it is at all possible. win32 downloads account for
half of all mpl downloads, and the GUIs are not exactly the same
