Hi

Running scipy.test() on Mac OS X Leopard, numpy-1.0.4 & scipy-0.6.0,
results in the following failure:

FAIL: check_dot (scipy.lib.tests.test_blas.test_fblas1_simple)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/scipy/lib/blas/tests/test_blas.py",
line 76, in check_dot
    assert_almost_equal(f([3j,-4,3-4j],[2,3,1]),-9+2j)
  File "/opt/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numpy/testing/utils.py",
line 158, in assert_almost_equal
    assert round(abs(desired - actual),decimal) == 0, msg
AssertionError:
Items are not equal:
 ACTUAL: 1.294297555666517e-37j
 DESIRED: (-9+2j)

Is this anything to worry about?

Cheers

Adam
