I'm getting a "crash" when using ipython and pylab on WinXP.
The problem shows up when I have a subplot and try to use ylim to
change the axis scale. Here's an example (after plotting some data).
In : ylim()
Out: (0.0, 30000000000.0)
In : xlim(-6, 6)
Out: (-6, 6)
(axis scsale changes as expected)
In : ylim(0, 1000)
( crash - i.e., CPU use goes to 100%, prompt does not return, Tkinter
and ipython windows unresponsive)
I just upgraded to pylab 0.81 (python 2.3.3) and see the same problem.
I'm not sure how to debug this from python since I don't have a
prompt. I did add some print statements to my original script and it
seems all commands execute in non-interactive mode until p.show(). If
I comment out the ylim() command the script works as expected.
