See http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/matplotlib.mathtext.html for a
list of known issues with mathtext. Short answer, it's on the list of
things to do.

Fixed in matplotlib-0.53. What, you mean you haven't upgraded yet?
I have indeed ! Always keen to upgrade fine software !
And here's what I found out (with probable solution at the end). I run
python shell, then I do :
from matplotlib.matlab import *
xlabel(r'$\alpha > \beta$',fontsize=5)
and then this figure pops up, and it works fine. Now I close the window
and I do :
xlabel(r'$\alpha > \beta$',fontsize=20)
but nothing changes in the size of the x label.
Now if I change the size AND the content, then it works fine :
This gives me a size 20 alpha.
So it looks as though you check for change in content, but not for change
