Strange behaviour of ytitle()... and ticks disappearing

Your problem is here:

  setp(a.get_yticklabels(), visible=False)

By making your yticklabels invisible, they are still used in
determining the position of the ylabel, but they aren't displayed
(this may be a mpl bug, I haven't thought about it enough). What you
want to do is turn off the tick labels altogether.

  ax.set_yticklabels([])

Hope this helps,
JDH
