Thanks to Fred, Chris, and JV for reproducing this bug.
We all get the same eps file, that doesn't show the greek symbols produced with mathtext.
And we all do get correct results on the screen (using Tk) and in pdf and png files.
I loaded the *eps* file in Adobe Photoshop and the *chi* letter **was** displayed along the x-axis. -- jv
It seems not to work on windows, while it used to work on versions 0.90.1 and earlier.
Sorry for the bad news.
Anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks, Mark

Hello windows users -

Can anybody using mpl 0.91.2 on windows reproduce this bug:

from pylab import *
plot([1,2,3])
xlabel(r'$\chi$')
savefig('c:/temp/test.eps')

This should give an eps file that when viewed does not show the letter chi along the x-axis (that's the bug).

We have been discussing this problem, and I think it is a bug in the windows distribution.
(It worked on all the previous mpl versions fine, just when upgrading from 0.90.1 the problem arose).

If you can, please email me your eps file: markbak@gmail.com

Thanks for your help, Mark
