I think I might have found a fix for this. The following patch allows my
script to run without a segfault:

$ svn diff
Index: umath_ufunc_object.inc
===================================================================

         output_wrap[i] = wrap;
         if (j < nargs) {
             obj = PyTuple_GET_ITEM(args, j);
-            if (obj == Py_None) {
-                continue;
-            }
             if (PyArray_CheckExact(obj)) {
                 output_wrap[i] = Py_None;
             }
-            else {
+            else if (obj != Py_None) {
                 PyObject *owrap =
PyObject_GetAttrString(obj,"__array_wrap__");
                 incref = 0;
                 if (!(owrap) || !(PyCallable_Check(owrap))) {


That call to continue skipped this bit of code in the loop, which is
apparently important:

        if (incref) {
            Py_XINCREF(output_wrap[i]);
        }


I've tested the trunk on 64 bit linux, with and without this patch applied,
and I get the same result in both cases: 1 known failure, 11 skips. Is there
any chance someone could consider applying this patch before 1.3 ships?
