[Numpy-discussion] Numpy problem with SVD

I tried the function numpy.linalg.svd(X) on an array X with 100 rows and 50

I got an Error message:
** On entry to DGESDD parameter number 12 has an illegal value
Then I got kicked out of python.

I tried numarray.mlab.svd(X) and it worked fine.

Is there a workaround to perform svd with numpy on reasonably sized arrays

Thanks in advance for your support
