matplotlib requires python2.2, which supports

  from __future__ import division

That line should be the on or near the first code line of
matplotlib/ When this is imported, the integer division //
operator is defined.

See what's new in python2.2

I'm surprised you didn't get an error on the call to
from __future__ import division.
