Thanks for the details. I'll try to reproduce it. I have no idea why
my setup doesn't work.
I've nailed it to:

>>> import numpy as np
>>> np.array([complex(0, 1)], np.complex64)
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000000 at address
(nil) (thread 0009), starting debugger...
...

So it is something with the complex types.
