performance problems

I'm having pretty serious performance problems using the wxpython
backend. On linux, it takes about 1-2 seconds to render a small
window with 1000 data points. On my mac laptop, it takes about three
times as long.

I've verified that interactive mode is off, antialiasing is disabled,
and the machine is otherwise idle. I'm using:

matplotlib 0.82
numeric 23.8

Profiling shows that all the time is being sucked into a couple
of axis drawing functions by way of OnPaint.

Any idea why it's so slow?
