These are a little odd. It gets the t-statistic right, so the problem is
not in stats. The issue seems to be in special.stdtr(), whose test isn't
failing for you. It only has a test for df=0 though.

The first failure comes down to giving a different answer from:
>>> special.stdtr(198, -1.09127) * 2
0.27648...

Do you get the same for these?
>>> special.stdtr(1, 0)   # this is tested
0.5
>>> special.stdtr(1, 1)  # this isn't
0.75000000000000022
>>> special.stdtr(1, 2)
0.85241638234956674
