My original offer (made several months ago) to help test this on Windows
still stands :)

Thanks.  Does git master build and pass the unit tests on Windows?


git master builds and tests OK on win32-py2.7.

With the attached patch git master builds and works (in practice) OK on win-amd64-py3.2 but there are many test errors of type "RuntimeError: Could not open facefile X:\Python32\...\ttf\Vera.ttf; Cannot_Open_Resource". I do delete the ~\.matplotlib folder before running the tests and can verify that FT2Font(r"X:\Python32\lib\site-packages\matplotlib\mpl-data\fonts\ttf\Vera.ttf") works.
That looks like the same issue we were having on the 1.1.x branch -- that it's running out of file handles -- that I thought was fixed by this PR:


Or are we seeing something else here?
