If the tolerance in the test is changed from eps=1e-7 to 1e-6, the test 
passes on my computer.  Several other float32 tests using the iris data 
also use 1e-6.  I added a note about the tolerance of similar tests in 
the ticket.  It does not seem unreasonable to simply loosen the 
tolerance a bit. Any objections?
