Dear all,

     The sentences bellow will always raise an Error or Exception just 
as follows, which is a little anomaly. Is this a bug?

     >>> u1=numpy.random.rand(100000)
     >>> u2=numpy.random.rand(100000)
     >>> scipy.stats.kendalltau(u1,u2)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
