I do think your estimate of typos is a bit aggressive.  Really?  5-10% typos.    What is the denominator?

In this particular case, you can just look at the pdf method and compare it with the logpdf method.  I only added ones that were obvious.  Are you running a test different from 

>>> from scipy.stats import test
>>> test()

to get these errors? 

Are you saying the skew and kurtosis test functions return different numbers than expected?
