Comment (by jhemmi):

 Replying to [ticket:451 silyko]:
 > The version of matplotlib included in the 64-bit installer (matplotlib
 version 1.3.1) causes python to crash when savefig is applied to save a
 png. This happens both from the GUI and when applied programatically. Does
 not happen e.g. for a pdf or jpeg, so seemingly a defect in a (lib)png
 dependency. Using backend "Qt4Agg".

 I've experienced the same problem on Windows but it's OK on Ubuntu &
 fedora. A workaround is to produce Tiff.
