Hi,

I just encountered a rather puzzling exception I have never seen before, 
which is generated when scipy.stats is imported. It occurs regardless if 
I use scipy from the latest SVN checkout or Fedora 8-yum.

[redfox@localhost chestnut]$ python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Oct 30 2007, 13:54:11)
[GCC 4.1.2 20070925 (Red Hat 4.1.2-33)] on linux2

     @deprecate

Any ideas?
