Package: python-matplotlib
Severity: important

After updating to latest python-matplotlib version, importing pylab
from matplotlib causes a segfault. Presumably this issue is specific
to my system/package configuration since it has not been reported yet
(assuming 556943 is not a duplicate, which it doesn't seem to be,
since the segfault there does not happen upon import). I'll try to
track down the root cause next.
