>From matplotlib's homepage:

In general, TkAgg is known to work with

   - python
   - idle -n (set tk.PYTHONINSPECT : True in
   - IPython

TkAgg is known not work with:

   - SciTE
   - pythonw
   - Pythonwin
   - idle

Both of the latter shells fail with a RuntimeError "abnormal program

Does anyone know why this is?
Can the problem(s) be overcome?
Is any work being done to overcome the incompatibility?
