Segmentation Fault TkAgg backend

I have been using WXAgg but I have had better success using TkAgg for animations.

So I tried TkAgg and get a segmentation fault. I haven’t used it in a while so I don’t know

when it stopped working. I have ipython 0.80 OS x 10.4.9 scipysuperpack with MPL 0.90.0

anyone have any idea or used TkAgg lately?

backend TkAgg version 8.4

I decided that the scipy superpack might be at fault so I installed numpy 1.02 from the macpython packages and
then reinstalled MPL 0.90.0 from the macpython packages and now TkAgg works. Also scipy still seems to work.

So apparently Fonnesbeck’s build of scipy superpack has a problem with TkAgg.
