Dear Matplotlib Folks,

When I run pylab.plot, I get a weird warning:

** (python:20754): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to system bus

Which backend are you using? I suspect this is actually a bug in the GUI
framework being used, which we could rule out by running a simple script
to do something basic (like show a window) and see if we get the same
warning.

FWIW, that same message sometimes gets printed when running Gnome
programs in a non-Gnome environment. So perhaps this is a GTK or GTKAgg
backend thing, and could be resolved simply by switching to e.g. TkAgg.
