That's not your posted code did, precisely.

Can only only debug what can see.

How were the figures that work saved vis a vis the ones that don't?
Something's clearly different in that case -- perhaps some have the two
subplots oriented the other direction or somesuch so that the described
behavior would be expected as it wouldn't match the previous locations
and hence a new would be expected to be created.

Need to see _exactly_ what failed and perhaps images of figures that
did/didn't would help.
