Just an update. I am still having this problem, along with some
additional problems where occasionally even dot returns nan's. I
have confirmed that without ATLAS everything seems to be fine, and
that the problem still remains with newer versions of ATLAS, Python,
ATLAS was configured with
-Fa alg -fPIC
and it passed all the tests.
The problem still exists with ATLAS version 3.8.1, gcc 4.3.0, and
recent versions of numpy.
'2.5.2 (r252:60911, Mar 29 2008, 02:55:47) \n[GCC 4.3.0]'
I have managed to extract a matrix that causes this failure
repeatedly once every two or four times eigh is called, so hopefully
I should be able to run gdb and track down the problem...
