You could try going to Application, Utilities, Console on your Mac to look for
any error log associated with the bus error.

OK - that does seem to confirm that its a bug with pylab, and therefore isn't
Biopython's fault.  I'm going to close this bug.

I would suggest you update your installation of pylab, and if it still goes
wrong, file a bug with pylab.

Thanks anyway,
