There seems to be a memory leak when running the example code
simple_idle_wx.py on windows. The task manager reports an increasing
number for used memory when running a modiefed version that does not
exit after 200 iterations. The leak seems to be in the draw_idle()
Are there any known work arounds for this?
Probably not helpful -- but here's a data point: On RHEL5 with Python 2.5, wxPython 188.8.131.52, matplotlib 1.x branch, I can't reproduce the memory leak.
This was using the old animation technique. It may be that the issue still exists with this older technique, but I suspect it is limited, and will now be having little to no impact. Closing this, but if anybody is able to reproduce this we can re-open.
