I believe I have this fixed in SVN. Please kick the tires and let me know if you still have problems.

Hi Mike,
   unfortunately this introduced another problem - with the patch all tick labels were miss-placed. I think I've fixed that now...

   But that brings me to another point. I get very strange results when running the dashtick example. The two PNGs attached show the result. dashticklabel.png is the output-file of the savefig() call, the other one is a Screenshot taken.
