speaking of which, I feel like I'm going cross-eyed with this bug,
so maybe this isn't a problem and should be considered user error
(I'll sleep on it before I look at what behavior should be
expected from matplotlib when the rcParam['interactive'] is set
to False), but the following short little script screws
up GTK threading, for me.

import matplotlib
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
#plt.interactive(True) # uncomment to fix
plt.show() # looks fine
plt.plot([2,1,2]) # this will timeout
plt.show() # grey window, no toolbar drawn

I think in our testing, Mark and I only checked if the first
figure worked, not the second. The above script doesn't seem to
cause issues if called with -pylab (which makes me think the
above just falls under user error) or when using just -wthread
with matplotlib.use("WXAgg").

I just wanted to send a brief note, hopefully it'll all be clear
in the morning.
