Ok, I found the stats.linregress case
https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/433

There is no way I write unit tests for all edge cases that I never
expect to show up.
For sure you find bugs/behavior like this in many packages, and I
wouldn't trust any package for extreme cases, no matter what their
test suite is.
