Oh you're right, I forgot. And this is an ipython only bug. You can
set the verbose setting to debug in your rc file and then run your
example from ipython to get the verbose output from ipython.
So to clarify after this recent confusion, here are the two things
that it would help to know:
* from ipython do you get the crash if you set your backend to be Agg
In : plot([1,2,3])
Out: [<matplotlib.lines.Line2D instance at 0xb6cad26c>]
In : savefig('test')
do you see the crash? Of course no figure will be plotted to the
screen, but the png should be created.
* If you set VERBOSE=True in setup.py and verbose : 'debug' in rc,
and issue the plot commands in tkagg from ipython that generates
the crash, what does the verbose output generate, particularly the
last 100 lines or so?
