O.K. so it's in the allclose code of masked arrays.

Could you look through that code and test each line separately.  Just 
placing print statements in your copy of scipy/base/ma.py can help.

Alternatively copy the allclose code to a test script and spread out the 
code so only one thing gets done at a time....

If you can isolate the problem to a single extension-code call, it can 
really help me.
