protect figure with gui-neutral widgets

Hi all,

I have been using backend-neutral matplotlib (0.99) widgets to implement
a simple GUI control, which can be opened from IPython pylab session.
The widgets are all contained in a dedicated figure, however if this
figure is the current one, pyplot commands draw through the widget
elements.

Is there any option to lock a matplotlib figure and thus protect it
from pyplot commands? If not, are there any plans to add such
function? I think this would surely make the matplotlib widgets more
useful.

Thank you,

Pavol

PS: Actually, the built-in subplot_tool function seems to suffer from
    the same issue - here is an example which draws a line through the
    Reset button:

$ ipython -pylab
In [1]: subplot_tool()
# click any slider
In [2]: plot(range(2))

This looks like a bug. Would you report it on Github as a New Issue, please, noting your mpl version and backend?
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues.

I can replicate it with 1.2.x on Linux.

Thank you.

Done - https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/984
I guess this means there is currently no way around it, right?

None that I know of offhand.
