purpose seems to be to ensure there's no segfault. There are probably loads
of functions that do strange things when you feed them object arrays with
None or something more random inside - no point checking for that in the
function. So to fix the test, maybe simply:

def test_none(self):
    """Ticket #1124. Ensure this does not segfault."""
    try:
        signal.medfilt(None)
    except:
        pass

Cheers,
Ralf
