Which scipy version are you using? It takes 0.33s on my laptop and
scipy in Debian:
Python 2.4.4 (#2, Mar 3 2008, 01:16:37)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
IPython 0.8.2 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
? -> Introduction and overview of IPython's features.
%quickref -> Quick reference.
help -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.
