In python 2.6, many operation are done in the native type (uint8 for example) what can lead to "odd" behavour. You should use dtype="float" in sum or mean methods of ndarray.

In python 2.7 the default type is switched to float, what changes some result and can break tests but the results are usually "better".

Hop this helps
