[SciPy-dev] missing Lib/__init__.py in newscipy?

When I tried to test newscipy from svn, I got a segfault:

from scipy import *
Importing io to scipy
Importing special to scipy
Segmentation fault

which I think is caused by an absent Lib/__init__.py file. Lib/old__init__.py 
does exist, which I renamed. The resulting build gave me the following error 
when I tried to import scipy, although it didn't segfault:

from scipy import *
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
exceptions.ImportError                               Traceback (most recent 
call last)

/home/darren/<console>

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/scipy/__init__.py
     10 from scipy_version import scipy_version as __version__
     11 from scipy.base import *
---> 12 from helpmod import *
     13
     14 _pkg_func_docs = ""

ImportError: No module named helpmod


Maybe, since I am new to the svn repository, I stumbled upon a file that 
accidentally got deleted from the branch? Just a guess.
