I don't get this problem myself. I'm using Eclipse 3.2, PyDev 1.3.1,
Python 2.4.4, and on a Mac, but perhaps it's some change I've made in
Preferences > Pydev > PyDev Extension > Code Analysis > * preferences.
Perhaps this would be better addressed on the PyDev user forums
(hosted on sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?
Also, as a "point of style," in general I think it's not the best to
use the `from something import *` idiom, and a bit better to do
something like `import numpy as N` (or some other (very short)
namespace prefix (like np)).
