On my 64-bit Fedora system all the following Python versions pass all 
the tests:
Python2.4
Python2.5
Python2.6
Python2.7
Python3.1
Python3.2 alpha

There appears to a common warning that, in at least using Python2.7, 
comes from this test:
Tests masked_unary_operation ... Warning: divide by zero encountered in log
ok

It is really great to have both Python 3.1 and 3.2 working!
