setting hist(log=True) causes recursion depth to be exceeded


I am sorry if this gets double posted but it has spent more than a day in
mailing-list limbo!

I have been trying to plot a hist of a large data array (len ~ 15,000) and
the log=True switch causes the following error to be thrown:

RuntimeError: Maximum recursion depth exceeded
line 87, in __init__
  self._parents = WeakKeyDictionary()

It works fine when i try it on smaller test data sets. When I use
sys.setrecursionlimit() to many values it either still exceeds max depth or
blows its mind and dies. Is there any way to do this without MAJOR code
length increases?
