That's what I supposed, but I couldn't find the reason why it wanted to do

It's not really a Python error but a logging.  The code won't let you

I've updated my numpy version to the latest svn, the behaviour seems to be
different (more warnings), I'll try to give more information about the
error, but giving the whole code will not be simple (it uses a big data file
that seems to trigger the error as with other data files, the error didn't
show up :()
