Anyone Have (XP) 2.4.4 Installed and Can Check This Simple matplotlib Program?

I'm going to try another stab at this problem again. I'd like someone with 
2.4.4 and  matplotlib-0.98.3.win32-py2.4exe to try it (below). It produces a 
runtime error, and python (IDLE) dies. If I use from the console "import 
matplotlib" or variations (pythonw), it fails.

I think is the final shot on this. If it won't work, I'm off to 2.5, and 
will drag some others with me who use the common program I'm trying to add a 
feature to.

Here's the code I pulled from the matplotlib site. I added finish() to it.

from pylab import *

def finish():
     print; print "Bye"
     raw_input('Press Enter to Quit')

t = arange(0.0, 2.0, 0.01)
s = sin(2*pi*t)
plot(t, s, linewidth=1.0)

xlabel('time (s)')
ylabel('voltage (mV)')
title('About as simple as it gets, folks')
