I was trying to track down a ylim related freeze problem in pylab 0.81. Not much luck so far, but I did run across another issue. Can someone try this and see if it displays sensible results in the latest versions?
import pylab as p
p.plot([0,1.6], [10000, -0.05])
p.plot([0,2], [-.050, 10000])
For me using TkAgg / python 2.3 I see a large filled triangle from the second plot command and nothing from the first. Admittedly this is usually not a practial issue but I’m wondering if it’s somehow related to the freeze I sometimes see when plotting data with a few points far outside of the present axis scale.
