[Numpy-discussion] SWIG / Numeric core dump

The following Python / SWIG / Numeric program dumps core.
I use RedHat Linux 7.1 on a PC. Python 2.1, Numeric 20.1.0,
SWIG 1.1 build 883, gcc 2.96. What is the problem?

The output looks like:

> doit.py
called import_array
Calling PyArray_FromDims
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
>

The program files are:
----------------------------------------------
doit.py:

#! /usr/bin/python

import Numeric, spam

spam.funct()
print 'spam.funct completed'

----------------------------------------------
spam.h:

#include "Python.h"
#include "/usr/include/python2.1/Numeric/arrayobject.h"

void funct(void);

----------------------------------------------
spam.i

%module spam

%{
#include "spam.h"
%}  

%init %{
    import_array();
    printf("called import_array\n");
%}

void funct(void);

----------------------------------------------
spammodule.c

#include "spam.h"

void funct(void)
{
    PyArrayObject *pao;
    int dims[2];

    dims[0] = 100;
    dims[1] = 200;
    printf("Calling PyArray_FromDims\n");
    pao = (PyArrayObject*) PyArray_FromDims(2, dims, PyArray_UBYTE);
    printf("Completed PyArray_FromDims\n");
    Py_DECREF(pao);
}

----------------------------------------------
swigit:

swig -python spam.i
gcc -c -Wall spammodule.c spam_wrap.c -I/usr/include/python2.1
ld -shared spammodule.o spam_wrap.o -o spam.so
