I am using matplotlib as part of a data analysis tool, and I am having problems with a crash on Windows 2008 server when plotting data.  The application use to run fine, though I guess there was a round of windows updates recently (including some VC++ 2008 runtime updates).  No problems on Windows 7 professional with the same runtime updates.


I have tracked the problem down to the function call to update_path_extents in the _path.pyd module from transforms.py (L821 in 1.0.1).


Anyone else seeing this?


The event log shows that it is an uncaught VC++ exception based on this message:
