Comment (by NeilMuller):

 The documentation for fminbound indicates it expects to be used with
 functions taking and returning scalar values. I thus see little point in
 allowing non-scalar bounds to be passed in

 The attached patch raises a ValueError if the bounds don't look like
 scalars. The check is not ideal, and probably needs further work.
