The error cause bad memory access, so the error, while reproducible 
sometimes, does not crash all the time: it is really configuration 
dependant.

Before the problem is fixed, a temporary would be to disable scipy.lib, 
since you are not likely to need it: just comment the line which import 
lib in scipy/setup.py inside scipy sources:

config.add_subpackage('lib') -> #config.add_subpackage('lib')

cheers,

David
