# Bounding box calculation in groupplots suddenly fails? [closed]

Suddenly some graphs changed in my documents. I have not the slightest idea what changed but as of today the bounding box calculation for some plots created in pgfplots is going haywire. My MWE looks as follows:

\documentclass[tikz]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz,pgfplots}
\pgfplotsset{compat=1.7}

\usetikzlibrary{pgfplots.groupplots}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{groupplot}[
group style={group name=my plots, group size=1 by 1}]
\nextgroupplot[xmin=0.05,]
\end{groupplot}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


And the non-expected output with lots of whitespace at the left:

This only happens in groupplots in combination with xmin=, not in normal plots but the document itself did not change.

This doesn't happen on my system. Does this only happen with the standalone class? If yes, what version of standalone are you using? –  Jake Mar 6 '13 at 14:22
@Jake: The problem remains with the article class. I recently updated pgfplots and checked that everything was ok but might have missed something due to the externalization library. –  Alexander Mar 6 '13 at 14:29
@Jake, thanks for the hint that it works on your system. This made me pretty suspicious that it must have something to do with the pgfplots and tikz versions. I have a recent unstable build of pgfplots but not of tikz installed. Now updating both to the most recent version solved the problem. –  Alexander Mar 6 '13 at 14:48
Excellent! I guess we can close this question then? –  Jake Mar 6 '13 at 14:49
@Jake, yes! I checked all my other groupplots and the problem is solved, thanks again! –  Alexander Mar 6 '13 at 15:01
