[Numpy-discussion] Segfault with dotblas on OS X 10.5.5/PPC (but not on Intel?)

Hello folks,

I'm doing some rather big matrix products on a G5, and ran into this.  
Strangely on the same OS version on my Intel laptop, this isn't an  
issue. Available memory isn't the problem either, I don't think, this  
machine is pretty beefy.

I'm running the python.org 2.5.2 build of Python, and the latest SVN  
build of numpy (though the same thing happened with 1.1.0).

Here's the debug info that OS X gives me:

Process:         Python [84664]

Version:         ??? (???)
Code Type:       PPC (Native)
Parent Process:  bash [79733]
