Hi Patrick

This is a bug in matplotlib. This bug
(https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/1419) sounds
similar to what you describe. I wrote a pulll request for mpl that
contains a fix and a test to solve it
(https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/1420)   but is not yet merged
into master. The bug should not be in matplotlib 1.2.x 1.1.1 and older.

greetings Jens
