I installed the latest release 0.30 replacing 0.29,
after uninstalling 0.29.
I'm observing some difference in behavior between the
two versions. Running some example code in 0.29,
after closing the plot windows, the python.exe process
quits normally. The same example using 0.30 hangs the
process and I have to kill it by hand. This occurs
both at the command line and from within my editor
(normally I execute from the editor).
I'm using Windows XP pro and UltraEdit.
Any ideas? Do I need to change some set up from when
I was using 0.29?
