It works for me too. The ticket doesn't specify the platform, but 
according to the Cython mailing list the import_umath() macro can fail 
to compile with Python 3.2, NumPy 1.6.1, 64bit Linux, GCC 4.5.2.

This is ticket #1374 <http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/ticket/1374>. To 
be safe one could use a try-except:
