Does that still work with current matplotlib? The import of pyplot triggers
the call to pylab_setup(), which causes matplotlib to assume that it will
be responsible for managing the windows.
It might also be that Tkinter might be the odd backend in this case and
that this wouldn't be portable to other backends. The tkagg backend has a
bunch of oddities that makes it different from the others.
