This number of calls has been changing before apparently, and now has
differences between platforms or python versions. For 0.8.0 it had an issue
on Windows due to == comparison with floating point numbers.

Since converging faster is not exactly a bug, can we just change the
comparison to <= ?

If you change the assert_array_equal calls in TestMedfilt to
assert_array_almost_equal does the test pass?
