Hi

I get the following (PIII, Win2k, Python 2.3.2) these are the N values
where the error begins.

SciPy                       Numeric
typecode='D'                typecode='D'
N=258144 FAIL               N=258140 FAIL

typecode='F'                typecode='F'
N=258140 FAIL               N=258140 FAIL

scipy.__version__ = '0.3.1_283.4226'
Numeric.__version__ = '23.3'
Both compiled with MinGW GCC 3.3.3

Hope this helps
Brett
