python-matplotlib-1.0.0-4 fails to produce output

Additional info:
python-matplotlib-1.0.0-4 searches for fonts in the wrong folder (/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages and not /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages as of python2 upgrade to 2.7) and therefore fails to produce any output.

Steps to reproduce:
trying to import matplotlib in python2 and producing a plot will cause the faillure.
problem temporarily fixed by creating a symbolic link pointing to /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib in /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages
This task depends upon
