I'm having the same problem as Claus; removing tm_interactive_input.dylib did not help on my system either.

This problem can be reproduced with the following 2 lines:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

Unfortunately, the script doesn't appear in the list of processes displayed by "ps", but it shows up as a Python process that's "not responding" in the Quit Applications menu (Command-Option-Escape) and Activity Monitor.

Claus; to answer your earlier question (off list): I'm relatively certain this issue is not related to your particular install of matplotlib. I've tried older revisions of Matplotlib (where previously, I did not observe this issue) and they now exhibit this issue.

I noticed this issue shortly after updating to TextMate r1589 (automatic "cutting-edge" update) and OS X 10.6.2 (minor version update): both around the same time. Is there a way to revert to an older revision of TextMate to see if this issue was caused by something in the update?

Also of note: A friend of mine has the same issue, but, only on his machine running 10.6---another machine runs 10.5 and does not have this issue.
