When the 'pylab' module is loaded the function 'strtod' does not work well.
Can you elaborate on how it doesn't work?
I suppose that this is not new: http://www.python.org/search/hypermail/python-1994q2/0750.html
and the question is: any solution?
There's a solution in that link: use one of the many alternatives that are known to be more consistent across various versions of UNIX.
In this linkit exists a better description of the problem:
I think this is not a matplotlib-specific problem, but a Python one, since Python provides its own strtod definition -- in an apparent attempt to get around its differences on different platforms. If you grep over the matplotlib source code, "strtod" isn't even there.
