All tests pass with matplotlib-1.2.0rc2.win-amd64-py3.3.

I wouldnt expect less. The question is if the TkAgg still works with
ActiveTcl on the Mac?

Ben Root

I almost never use the GUI stuff in mpl. When I do, it's almost always
the Qt4 backend or the OS X backend. I have never gotten the Tk
backend to work. It always errors out with after popping up a window
(with no plot in it) and fails very gracefully with a TclError, giving
no indication of what Tcl didn't like.

I think Phil is a Tk-er.
