The remaining problem with the log axis tick marks is the assumption in the code that all major tick marks are placed at regular intervals. This works in log mode as long as the major tick marks go at multiples of 10. However, when the range is small (i.e. log(max)-log(min) < 1.5)
this is no longer suitable. As major ticks must go at regular intervals the values associated with these tick marks now become "strange".

The correct solution to this problem would be to remove the regular interval assumption in log mode, which means re-working a lot (if not all) of the axis code. Is this something we want to do? For which release?
