Yes, this is a known issue with colorbar and legend: those functions change the "activepositionproperty" of their corresponding axes, which makes subplot size not be updated correctly. The workaround is to draw legends (or colorbars) last:

Confirm also with fltk backend.
The actual numbers for pos depend slightly on the font.

should result in two subplots of equal size, but it doesn't. The example does not show a big effect, but I noticed this behaviour in a case where in fact the bottom title and the top xlabel overlapped.

I also noticed that stable and dev are slightly different:

0.76992 0.33843
0.76992 0.30274

0.76992 0.33843
0.76992 0.30036

Matlab and gnuplot work fine.
