- Enthought is an awesome Windows bundle with
scientific-batteries-very-included, even if it does trail releases of
Python itself by ~1yr. (currently at Python 2.4.3)
It takes all the headache out of installing compatible
versions of multiple numeric and visualization packages, which is
seriously painful.

- Best place to ask your Ubuntu / transplanted binary question is on
'enthon-dev' list. https://mail.enthought.com/mailman/listinfo
(also has 'enthought-announce' and other lists)
I suspect they do not support that.

- I am not aware of other VTK users in BayPIGgies but I think it's good for 
scientific apps;
I know quite a few scientific users use GTK.
I never encountered any of the issues you did.
Either try Enthought Python on XP (should be easy), or try reporting and
troubleshooting the individual packages like VTK (more painful).
