I have a question: in interactive (ipython -pylab) mode, a call to savefig('foo.eps') (either via %run or straight at the prompt) still pops up a GUI plot window. If I run the same script from a system command line, the eps is made, but no GUI opens (what I consider the correct behavior).
Is this something that should be fixed in ipython or in matplotlib?
ps. Yes, John, I've finally started to use matplotlib for my own work. Brace yourself, I'm compiling a pretty hefty list of things to do. I hope you don't plan on sleeping much in the coming months
