The clean build and install worked! (I'm sorry I couldn't get it to work before--I must not have cleaned it properly.) It's running without any problems. Thank you very much!

Please try doing a clean build and install following the instructions at

 http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/faq/installing_faq.html#source-install

Basically do the following

 > sudo rm -rf build
 > sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/mpl_toolkits
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib*
 > python setup.py build > build.out
 > sudo python setup.py install > install.out

and attach both build.out and install.out in your followup email.

Good luck!
