The segfaults are because we forgot to increment the ABI version.
There's a thread about this on the Numpy list.

Scipy 0.8 will not be compatible with Numpy 1.2.x, and so the trunk will
not build with Numpy 1.2.x.
If you want to test your backports to 0.7.x, I think you should anyway
compile the 0.7.x branch, to which you are backporting the fixes, not the
trunk from which you backport them.
