[SciPy-Dev] Sporadic failures of tests of signal.correlate with dtype complex64

I remember running into a random number issue with edp
":Python version 2.6.5 |EPD 6.2-2 (32-bit)| (r265:79063, May 28 2010,
> 15:13:03) [GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5488)]"
Becuase of the mkl library.

I wrote a whole set of numpy.random.test() just to make sure the results
where consistent. but I am not sure they where ever used.

Not where I can get to this now but can look later.
