TeX + QT4Agg = Broken (Mac OS X)

I just ran into the following Bug: When choosing Qt4Agg as my backend
in the matplotlibrc, using TeX will break matplotlib.

Could you run your test script with --verbose-debug, redirect the output
to a file and send it to me (off-list; it will be a large file)?

Got it, thanks. This looks really odd: with both MacOSX and QT4Agg
backends, kpsewhich finds some TeX-related files, but with QT4Agg some
files are not found. It doesn't look like a simple matter of wrong paths
or anything like that, because then it would not find any files.

We have had multiple problems related to Qt and subprocesses. Some
Googling suggests that such problems are quite prevalent and might not
be easy to solve.
