I don't use pylab/matplotlib, but I do develop Chaco  
(code.enthought.com/chaco) and use WingIDE to debug several  
applications that use Chaco for their interactive plotting.  This is  
under win32, using Chaco's wx and Agg backend.  From what I  
understand, pylab handles its Agg-to-wx transfer somewhat differently  
than Chaco, and this might be where the problem lies.
