That is very helpful -- if one of you can send me a problematic font
file offlist I will try and replicate and fix this bug. By running in
--verbose-debug, you should be able to ascertain which file is causing
the grief.

I don't see how license of the bakoma fonts and the ttf cache are
related. The cache is used to store a dictionary of which fonts were
found on your system so that it doesn't have to search the system
every time. I do not want to configure mpl to use only the bakoma
fonts since I haven't been too impressed with the cm*10*.ttf fonts I
used with mathtext. For example, last I checked they did not appear
to have kerning information, and the letter stroke thicknesses appear
uneven to me in some cases. Perhaps the others are better, or I am
doing something wrong.

But in any case, thanks for the heads up on the license change. I
have update mpl CVS with the new fonts and license info.

Here's the verbose-debug output.

Hi Guys,
    I found the font that was causing the problem by adding 'verbose.report('CreateFontDict: %s' % (fpath), 'debug')' just
inside the 'for fpath in fontfiles:' inside the font_manager.createFontDict function. Here's the last part of the output:

CreateFontDict: C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\VIVALDII.TTF
CreateFontDict: c:\windows\fonts\lfax.ttf
CreateFontDict: C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\PALSCRI.TTF
CreateFontDict: c:\windows\fonts\orlando.ttf
Assertion failed: ob_refcnt == 0, file CXX\cxx_extensions.cxx, line 1031

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

When I remove orlando.tff from c:\windows\fonts\, matplotlib works fine. Thanks again for your help guys!
