Hi Matthew,

no  - I have been comparing 0.6.0 and r5579, so everything I am saying
henceforth may turn out to be irrelevant.

At any rate, I attach a .mat file - for this file:

In [24]: sp.__version__
Out[24]: '0.6.0'

In [25]: mat_file = sio.loadmat('RMT110408.mat')

In [26]: mat_file
Out[26]:
{'ROI': <scipy.io.mio5.mat_struct object at 0x1b2ef110>,
 '__globals__': [],
 '__header__': 'MATLAB 5.0 MAT-file, Platform: MAC, Created on: Wed Dec  3
18:45:42 2008',
 '__version__': '1.0'}

In [31]: sp.__version__
Out[31]: '0.8.0.dev5579'

In [32]: mat_file = sio.loadmat('RMT110408.mat')

In [33]: mat_file
Out[33]:
{'ROI': array([[<scipy.io.matlab.mio5.mat_struct object at 0x1d277810>]],
dtype=object),
 '__globals__': [],
 '__header__': 'MATLAB 5.0 MAT-file, Platform: MAC, Created on: Wed Dec  3
18:45:42 2008',
 '__version__': '1.0'}


>From all that you have said, this is probably no surprise to you.

Cheers,

Ariel
