I'm trying to use the scatter method, making use of the option to specify
the marker as a tuple. From the documentation, it would seem that specifying
marker=(0,3,0) should draw a circle. However, this is not the case. If you
consider the following code:
import matplotlib.pyplot as mpl
fig = mpl.figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(111)
The first ax.scatter causes an error, the second plots a triangle, and the
third a hexagon. However, the documentation states that (a) setting the
second element to '3' should plot a circle, and (b) the other arguments
should be ignored, so the first ax.scatter should not cause an error.
Is this a bug, or am I misunderstanding the documentation?
