Hello, Michiel.

The OSX backend used to have a bug where you cannot type a name in the file name text box.  Since that has been fixed, I have found a new bug: every so often, when you go to save a file, the "save" and "cancel" button stop responding, trapping the user in file saving limbo.  I'll have to play with it again to figure out what triggers this.  Other than that, the OSX backend is light and quick, which is nice.  When QT4 is working, however, I prefer that.  Sorry I can't give you more details; I'll see if I can get a clearer picture.

After playing with backends quite a bit, I have found that the best one in terms of speed, robustness, and features is Qt4Agg - especially on OSX, where the MacOSX backend is buggy and many others just don't plain work. 

Why do you think that the MacOSX backend is buggy?
