I've been building matplotlib 0.87.7 on a 10.4.7 OS X system, with
Universal Python 2.4.3 from pythonmac.org. I've been following
to create a universal library, downloading and compiling my own
libpng and libfreetype. I don't have GTK or wxPython, so the backend
is Tk by default.
Matplotlib will crash on show() [a white window will briefly show,
and then disappear] as in
alloc: invalid block: 0xabc3fc9c: 9b 8 0
I think I'm using the "system" Tk (but how to check?)
Any input welcome... I suppose I could get other backends, but I
would be interested in figuring this out with Tk.

Please keep posting your experiences.
At work I'm about to spend my first ever time on a Mac,
and I expected this to be a blessing,
but such reports worry me!
