[Python-modules-team] Bug#474001: savefig as pdf not working in python2.5

Package: python-matplotlib
Version: 0.90.1-4
Severity: important

one basically cannot save figures as .pdf using python 2.5.

the reason is simple:

  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_pdf.py", line 505, in get_char_width
    unicode = cp1252.decoding_map[charcode] or 0
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'decoding_map'

decoding_map is known under decoding_table in python2.5

maybe version 0.91 fixes this?
