Well, I lost it... whatever was hung up apparently gave up and killed Python when I shut down my local machine. It would still be nice to know how to fix this though, in case it happens again...

Thanks,

Hi all,

I'm using matplotlib with the TKAgg on a remote machine running Ubuntu. Normally when I call 'plot' I see the plot in an X11 window, but I called 'plot' yesterday and Python went unresponsive... it doesn't listen to ctrl-C or anything, and it's been more than 24 hours.

I would REALLY like to preserve the data Python has in memory. Is there any way to kill the plot command and wake Python back up?

Thanks,
