path simplify problem

I am seeing a problem with the path.simplify rcParam. When it is enabled, I see spikes in my plots appear and disappear when I resize the plotting window. When it is disabled, this does not happen. Attached are pictures showing the effect. In the first image, there is no spike at x=2559. In the second plot, I resized the window slightly and the spike appears.

Is this the expected behavior or is this a bug?

Thanks,
Lane

Is this with matplotlib 0.99.1.2, or SVN trunk? 0.99.1.2 has a known bug in the path simplification algorithm.
