Debian recently updated cairo enabling "tee surface" and "OpenGL/EGL" backend (see ). With this new cairo, ipython 10.1 segfaults using the autoshow feature of imgshow(). For instance, launching "ipython --pylab" and executing:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.image as mpimg
results in a segfault.
Note that using the updated cairo with ipython 10 works, as well as using ipython 10.1 with previous cairo (without "tee surface" and "OpenGL/EGL" backend).
