I've pushed a fix to v1.2.x and master for this new problem (35ee2184111fb8f80027869d8ee309c7f4e5a467).  Unfortunately, another rebase of your branches is in order in order to get this fix.

And looks like Thomas reported an issue too:
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/1548

This is a different problem, though (unless it's a really bizarre symptom of the other problem). Now it's an error in compiling matplotlib.
