[SciPy-dev] Installation problems of Scipy 0.5.2 under Windows/AMD

I tried the scipy-0.5.2.win32-py2.5.exe installer in 4 different Windows XP
machines.
Two were Intel (Celeron) boxes and scipy.test() runs fine.
Two were AMD (XP) boxes and scipy.test() fails.

In all these machines I have Numpy.1.0.1.
numpy.test() works fine in all them.

I tried to investigate the failure in the AMD machines but was unable to
reach
a final conclusion. Since I am a scipy newbie I may be making stupid
things...

When I run scipy.test() the command window crashes Python.
The message is "python.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience".

I first tried to run scipy.test (verbosity=10) in order to receive more
information.
Tests run sucessfully until
"check_algebraic_log_weight (scipy.integrate.tests.test_quadpack.test_quad)"
crashes Python.

In order to debug, I commented all the tests that crashed Python.
These tests are:

scipy\fftpack\tests\test_basic.py
scipy\fftpack\tests\test_pseudo_diffs.py
scipy\integrate\tests\test_integrate.py
scipy\integrate\tests\test_quad.py
scipy\interpolate\tests\test_fitpack.py
scipy\interpolate\tests\test_interpolate.py
scipy\linalg\tests\test_basic.py
scipy\linalg\tests\test_decomp.py
scipy\linalg\tests\test_matfuncs.py
scipy\optimize\tests\test_cobyla.py
scipy\optimize\tests\test_optimize.py
scipy\special\tests\test_basic.py
scipy\optimize\stats\test_distributions.py
scipy\optimize\stats\test_morestats.py

If these files were renamed to something else,
all other scipy tests run fine on the AMD boxes.

I tried to recompile scipy using the pre-built AMD ATLAS binaries.
Scipy recompilation was sucessfull but the tests still fail.
Any suggestion?
