Subject: [Matplotlib-users] pylab or not... crashes or not
- when I start a session with "ipython -pylab" I often get crashes with my
session. When I mean "often", it means really often like once everything 1/2h or
so. A crash means that the command I just sent gets stuck and the only way for
me to get it back is to kill the PID of the ipython process...
IPython 0.8.1 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
I would say the pb is actually coming from ipython. I experienced it while using ipython-0.8.1, but I guess it disappeared starting with ipython-0.8.3 (see http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/WhatsNew083: "Multithreaded shells (used e.g. by matplotlib interaction) have been improved, reducing the possibility of corner case deadlocks."). I'm now using 0.8.4 and I don't remember I ever had this pb again.
See you! (and congrats )
