There is more to it. You'll find another puzzling error once you fix this
one. If you read carefully the docs to optimize.fmin_l_bfgs_b, you can
see that if you do not specify the gradient of the function, fprime, func
should return two arguments: the value of the function you want to
optimize, and the gradient. If you don't want this behavior, you should
set "approx_grad" to true.

HTH,
