Did your question get answered? I may have lost track.

You are creating the drawing area with a height of 210 points, but you
are setting the height of the plot to 170 points:

drawing = shapes.Drawing(145, 210)
lp = LinePlot()
lp.x = 30
lp.y = 20
lp.height = 120
lp.width = 170
lp.data = [ data.values() ]

That extra 40 points represents the empty space you see.
