Hello Brian,
May you please give us a script to replicate this bug? I tried, with

>>> import matplotlib
>>> matplotlib.__version__

(the latest in sid) and the following script:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from numpy import random
plt.plot(random.rand(500000), 'r.') ; plt.show()

(change 500000 at your convenience) and the graph is drawn correctly
(ok, half million points are a lot to be drawn for my 19" screen, so
it's almost all red).

If you can't provide any examples, I think I'm going to close this bug.
