Hello,

I installed numarray on a RedHat 8.0 with Python 2.2.1. The build completed
fine, but it failed when I tried to testall.test(). Here is the output:

------------------------------------------------------------
Python 2.2.1 (#1, Aug 30 2002, 12:15:30)
[GCC 3.2 20020822 (Red Hat Linux Rawhide 3.2-4)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import numarray.testall as testall
>>> testall.test()

numarray.objects:                       (0, 68)
numarray.memorytest:                    (0, 16)
Fatal Python error: GC object already in linked list
Aborted
------------------------------------------------------------

Seems like a garbage collector problem. That's all I can tell. I installed
using "python setup.py install --gencode --prefix=<installation directory>"
and then "export PYTHONPATH". Does anyone have a clue how this can be fixed?

Thanks!

Tina
