 # Two y axis with twinx, only one of them logscale

Hi everybody,

I want to include different data into one plot using a common xaxis but two
yaxis. One of these axis should be log scaled. The problem is, that this
automatically changes the scaling (or just the ticks) of first yaxis, which
should be linear to log. I assume this is a bug, but its also possible that
I didn't understand how to do it. Here my code:

fig=figure()
p1=ax1.plot(A0,data[:,11])
ax1.set_yscale('linear')
setp(p1,color='blue',ms=3.0,marker='.',alpha=1.,ls='')
ylim(ymax=1.1)
xlabel(r'$m_{16} \ (\mathrm{GeV})$')
ylabel(r'$R$')
#savefig('p30.pdf')
ax2=ax1.twinx()
p2=ax2.plot(A0,data[:,33])
ax2.set_yscale('log')
ax1.set_yscale('linear')
ylim(ymax=10)
axhline(y=0.136, xmin=0., xmax=1, color='black',ls=':')
axhline(y=0.094, xmin=0., xmax=1, color='black',ls=':')
setp(p2,color='orange',ms=3.0,marker='.',alpha=0.3,ls='')
savefig('p33.png')
clf()

I believe that it does not actually change the y scale of the first
axes, but simply the
y tickmarks of the second axes gets visible again. It seems to me a
bug, though. Anyhow, I guess inserting following line after

ax2.yaxis.tick_right()
