Comment (by psederberg):

 Thanks for trying it out.  I did not compile numpy from source (mainly
 because I've been trying to live the pipe dream that I could have a
 machine that was running on existing packages.)  Debian is still at 1.0.4
 for numpy (even in unstable).

 I will follow up with the Debian package maintainer for NumPy and see what
 the timeframe is for providing new packages, though it will probably have
 to wait until the 1.0.5 is released.

 In any case, it looks like this bug is fixed in the upstream code and the
 only issue is how long before it trickles down to users who do not want to
 compile from scratch.  In the meantime I will simply use the
 scipy.linalg.lstsq method so that I can allow end-users to use our library
 without installing support libraries from source.

 Best,
 Per
