\n not working in text ?

hi,

I am trying to have text written on 2 lines, but everything is written
on a single line. Is that normal?

here is an example:

plot(arange(10))
ylabel('this is vertical \n test')
text(0.5,0.5,"this is a test \n but does not work")

thanks
Eric

It works on my machine (linux) with svn, but I don't see anything about this in CHANGELOG.

ok thanks for the check. Since it seems like a personal setting pb, I
have now restarted from a clean matplotlibrc and set up my prefered option.
It now works (no clue why it didn't...)

sorry for the trouble and thanks for doing that test.
cheers
