In ticker.py, I suggest replacing Base.ge with: def ge(self, x): 'return the largest multiple of base >= x' d,m = divmod(x, self._base) if closeto(m,0) and not closeto(m/self._base,1): return x return (d+1)*self._base The fourth line used to be if m==0: return x, which fails sometimes due to floating point inaccuracy. John, remember I was complaining about how certain ticklabels wouldnt get rendered in the new scalarformatter I posted a couple weeks ago? This was the problem. Darren
