Hi Pujo,

Without seeing what you've actually written, I'm not sure how effectively
we can help you here.  If you can, point us to code that we can use to
reliably reproduce your problem.  Otherwise, we really can't say at all
what's happening here.

If I were forced to guess, I guess that some resource is not being
properly set to the initial state when the plot is first closed.  Since
many of us here have little experience with the matplotlib package, you
may want to check with someone on the matplotlib-users mailing list to see
if someone there can help you:
