Thank you!  That was it.  I had 0.7 installed (the latest in the Ubuntu 
repository).  I downloaded and manually installed 0.10 and now it's 
working.  Coincidentally, this also fixed a problem I was having with 
running a matplotlib plot function against a pandas Data Frame (worked 
with some chart types but not others).

I'm starting to understand why people rely on easy_install and pip.  
Thanks again.
