Darn. My few simple tests all work. If you can figure out which 
functions are failing, and make a small sample that fails, post it here 
and to the python-mac list. There are some smart folks there that might 
be able to help.

However, it might be easier to port to numpy that do all that. And 
you'll definitely get more help solving any problems you have with numpy.

good luck.
