I don't have a Mac to try this on -- however, I don't see the leak on
Fedora 14/Python 2.7/Numpy 1.5.1/Tkinter with both matplotlib 1.0 and
matplotlib SVN head. That may narrow it down to something Mac OS
X-specific. Sorry that's not totally helpful, but it's a data point.
Thank you; that is very helpful. Unfortunately that suggests it is
Mac-specific or Tcl/Tk-version-specific which could make it hard to
track down. I'll report it as a bug in any case.
