I have only tested the RC on my 32-bit Windows install using the
provided binary.
I get the test_decomp.TestSchur and syntax error in test_distributions.py.

But buried in the test output (when run within command line Python but
not under IDLE) is this:
"capi_return is NULL
Call-back cb_dselect_in_dgees__user__routines failed."

This also appears with the current dev version under Linux.

$ python2.5 test_decomp.py
................................................................................................................................................capi_return
