Thanks for the response.

I have a plot that has a maximum magnitude of about 0.2. I'd like to set the
radius of the plot circle to 1.

FYI: Here's a sample script for the bug report (if I understand what you're trying to do).

Add the following line to the polar_demo.py right before show:

ax.set_rmax( .8 )

And then you get the attached picture. It looks like the polar axis doesn't respond to changes in the maximum radial value to display (even though the axis implements the set_rmax method just for that).
