"Matlab-like" plotting library

Issue 1316: plotlib breaks Atoms manager, convert from Matlab etc

Reported by Francis Vaughan, Sep 28, 2013

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Fresh download of SciLab 5.4.1 on Mac OSX 10.8.5
2. Use gui ATOMS module manager to install plotlib
3. Restart
4. Open gui ATOMS module manager via menu

Expected result:

Atoms manager should open in a window, in the same manner it did in 
step 2.

Actual result:

Nearly empty window opens, console displays:

Startup execution:

Start plotlib toolbox 0.45
Load macros
Load help

-----------------

The convert from Matlab gui is now similarly broken.

Java is:

% java -version
java version "1.7.0_40"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_40-b43)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b56, mixed mode)

This bug is fixed in the 0.45-2 version (waiting to be packaged on 
Atoms forge).

The version installed by ATOMS is now 0.46-3.
So, i did not check, but this bug should be fixed by now.
