I encountered this particular problem quite often now. If you use matplotlib
in a directory that contains a large number of files, things become
extremely slow after calling pylab.show(). I suspect the interface
internally lists all files in that directory?
I often have to plot from directories with huge amounts of data, is there a
way to change that behavior?
