PSfrag support broken

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I published a message when I still was a non-member asking about a way of get the same functionality in Matplotlib as with gnuplot epslatex terminal. After some exhaustive research, I found in the Cookbook ( that I could let LaTeX render the text using the PSfrag package. However, when I tried to reproduce the example, I discovered that it didn’t work: after some more research, I stumbled upon a question in this mailing list ( where it became clear that, with some changes made to the output of PS files, PSfrag could not read the labels anymore.

My questions are, assuming I am not doing anythinkg wrong (only copy&paste, I promise): Is there anyone working on this? Should I file a bug somewhere? Is there anything I can do?

Thank you in advance
