Suddenly, many of them are no longer valid handles which messes up downstream GUI functions. (before, a call to ishandle for the handles array gives all 1s. After, there are strings of 0s).

My language was imprecise. I cleared the axes of the axes on the 2nd figure. But I explicitly specified that axis:


So it shouldn't touch any handles of patches that are associated with the primary axis, or so I would assume.

And yet, I have an array of 500 or so handles to patch objects that are all children of the primary axis. If I do:


I get output like the following:

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 (for the first disp())
0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 (for the 2nd disp()

the important thing is that these handles should (or at least I'd like them to) have nothing at all to do with the axis_figure2
