zoomhistory,_zoom_to_rectangle? Also save position???

I think (hope) what Martin (nice email address btw) means is that when
you use the history button it reverts back to the old axis limits, but
not to the old position.
The history function needs to be updated to both keep track of axes limits and axes positions.
This is also important for the new axis(‘equal’) command that was
submitted as a patch and will hopefully appear in the next release.
I guess this shouldn’t be too difficult.

Subject: [Matplotlib-users] =?ISO-8859-1?Q?zoomhistory,_zoom_to_rectangle?=


one of Matplotlib’s greatest advantage (besides the great graphics of
course) is the ability to zoom in into plotted curves. The zoomhistory is
thereby a very good and useful tool.
I figured out two things:

  1. Unfortunetly this history seems not to work properly in some cases. I
    was able to track down this error on the call of the subplot-command (see
    example below).
    Is this a little bug or am I using those commands in a way they are not

supposed to be used?
