Many thanks! Do you have a simple example demonstrating the problem
in pure Numeric code?
(this would make it simpler to illustrate/test the problem without
referring to scipy and thus more convincing, IMHO).

Until that happens: is there a file which I could hand-edit
in my installation (of course this would only work if it is on the .py
level) to remove the problem for the moment?

Best,

Arnd
