[SciPy-dev] Trouble with fmin_cg

I guess monitor(x0) is real number, not function.
Hence it yields error.
Maybe you need

fmin_cg(func,x0,callback=monitor) ?

BTW there is a way of connecting user-defined output func in openopt, I 
can explain you if you are interested (I haven't provided an example to 
OO documentation yet).
