I'm seeing five test failures on my Mac (Python 2.7):

FAIL: matplotlib.tests.test_mlab.test_recarray_csv_roundtrip

I am seeing this one on my 64-bit machine, but not on my 32-bit machine
(both Linux).

FAIL: matplotlib.tests.test_text.test_font_styles.test
FAIL: matplotlib.tests.test_text.test_font_styles.test

How much was the difference?

Large: in all three result images, the condensed and light fonts look

had the same erroneous output.

I wonder if this is a Freetype version issue...

FAIL: matplotlib.tests.test_tightlayout.test_tight_layout5.test

Hmm, I wonder if font issues on the macosx backend might cause the layout to
not be exactly the same as on the other backends? (or does the test use

This failure was with the svg backend, and the difference is in where
exactly the borders of the colored squares are, nothing to do with
fonts. I'll attach the relevant images.

FAIL: no_testCreateLocaltime (test_tzinfo.LocalTestCase)

Any info provided on this failure?
