plot_date inconsistency

No problem.

pylab.py is for the most part a thin wrapper of functionality of
axes.py. Eg, pylab.plot calls ax.plot and pylab.imshow calls
ax.imshow. So if you find a problem with a pylab docstring, you can
usually find the original function in axes.py and fix that.

If you are on a win32 platform, which I think wyou are, you can install
ming32 and run a diff command like the one suggested by Charles Moad
at

If you are not comfortable with cvs/patch/diff, that's fine. Just
edit the files in question and send them to me as an attachment and I
can deal with them.

Thanks,
