This is not an error, but it looks like you have numarray installed
but not Numeric, but you haven't set your numerix preference to
numarray. This is a parameter in .matplotlibrc. See
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/.matplotlibrc. If indeed you want
to use numarray, I suggests setting
numerix : numarray
or else install Numeric. This will stop the numeric/numarray

This is a bug. We've tried to replace all the numeric only code with
code that works with both numeric and numarray. Todd Miller has
already fixed this one in CVS. Here's the latest colors.py; just
replace the current file with this one and let us know how it goes:
