Do you have a specific example? pylab is just pyplot with some
additional imports from mlab and numpy. Otherwise, they're the same
plotting API.


Sorry, no, I don't have any specific examples.  Only that I have seen "mysterious" issues disappear when the code was converted into one style or the other.  This was way back in the days when I was just learning matplotlib, so I really didn't understand what I was doing at the time.  In any case, it was those issues that caused me to completely switch over to the pyplot style.
