You should be able to test that by doing:
>>> import scipy
>>> import scipy.linalg
<module 'scipy.linalg' from '/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/scipy/linalg/__init__.pyc'>
<function eig at 0x8379c34>
See if the "module ..." and "function ..." output is the same on both
setups . If the module information (esp. the filename!) is different, yo
uknow you're in a situation like Fernando guessed you were.
(For me, between loads, the function address stays the same, but that's a
pretty poor indicator and I'm just mentioning in case it happens to be
helpful. Rely on the module's declared filename.)
