This situation happens when the main window is destroyed but
gtk.main_quit() is not called - the gtk.main loop is still running.
I'm not seeing this problem at the moment.
In FigureManagerGTK the 'destroy' signal is connected to Gcf.destroy
(num), which should eventually call
def destroy(self, *args):
if Gcf.get_num_fig_managers()==0 and not
I set DEBUG = True and ran a few examples and it showed
FigureManagerGTK.destroy() was being called as expected.
Perhaps Gcf.get_num_fig_managers() is sometimes not 0 when it should be
0 and gtk.main_quit() is not being called.

For some reason with matplotlib CVS using backend GTK on linux, I no
longer recover the linux shell when I close the figure by clicking on
the 'x' in the figure window

I have to use CTRL-C.
