[SciPy-user] Matlab IO -- can others with matlab test this bug?

Hi Zachary,

I just tested your test with yesterdays SVN SciPy and both .mat files
load with no problems in MATLAB 7.6.0.324 (R2008a) (with Python 2.5,
OS X 10.5.4). Perhaps Mathworks fixed the bug in there end if that's
where it is.

Hope that helps.
Jonny
