Thanks for the bug reports,
I thing the crash and the shear effect are both part of the same bug
that arose from a floating point error in converting figure units to
width and height. I believe this is a simple fix. I was able to
replicate both of the buggy behaviors on my winxp box, and the
following change fixed both. Perhaps you and Heiko can test on your
respective scripts and let me know.
On site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_wxagg.py, replace
Render the figure using agg
DEBUG_MSG("draw()", 1, self)
s = self.tostring_rgb()
w = int(self.renderer.width)
h = int(self.renderer.height)
image = wxEmptyImage(w,h)
self.bitmap = image.ConvertToBitmap()
Let me know!
Know if I can just figure out why there is the irritating flicker on
resizes in win32....
