didn't work for going from data to a (0, 0) - (1, 1) bounding box.  Can you provide a small, yet complete, example that illustrates the bug so I can look at it further?

I tried to put together a simple example showing my problem, but the example worked properly! Doh!

It turns out that my problem was specific to using a bounding box as an input to transform:

from numpy.random import rand
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

ax = plt.subplot(111)
xy = rand(5,2)
ax.loglog(xy[:, 0], xy[:, 1], 'ro')

trans = ax.transScale + ax.transLimits
result = trans.transform(ax.dataLim) 

The above command gives me:
    TypeError: 'Bbox' object is unsubscriptable
(Note, if I call `plot` instead of `loglog` I don't have problems). The quick solution is to replace the last line with

>>> result = trans.transform(ax.dataLim._points)

I guess I was confused because the transform worked fine with `plot`. Is the TypeError above expected behavior?

Thanks for your help.
