Be warned that in some installations (in particular some using ATLAS),
 supplying econ=True can cause a segfault under certain conditions (I
think only when the arrays are misaligned, e.g. coming from
unpickling, and even then only with certain data); the bugfix for this
may or may not be complete, and involves copying misaligned arrays.
