Hi Everyone, Looks like I may have run into a bug for the contourf function. I was able to reproduce the problem on two OS X systems. One was based on 10.5 and the other was on 10.4. The problem appears when you use contourf with alpha < 1. With the transparency there appears to be streaks of lines pointing downward from the contour lines. Is this a bug that has been spotted before? Additional information is provided below with a python script to reproduce the problem. Note, this bug was reproduced with a range of different parameters and input values. The script is the easiest way to reproduce the problem.

The script is the easiest way to reproduce the problem. It is partly inherent in the underlying contouring algorithm, and I think partly reflecting a common characteristic of renderers. On my ubuntu box, the problem shows up in agg, pdf or ps shown with evince, but *not* in svg rendered by eog. The part inherent in the contouring algorithm is that all patches are simply connectedthe algorithm does not make annular patches, for exampleso there is a vertical cut. With alpha < 1, that cut, and for that matter the boundary between one patch and the next, seem to be effectively rendered twice. The contour code is already specifying that the patch should be rendered without a boundary, so I don't know what else can be done.
