- complex192 isn't on the 64bit box, but complex256 is, so that keeps
the number of tests for that type equal.

- float96 -> float128, again no change in test count

- for some reason, the 32-bit box gives
 'int': [<type 'numpy.int8'>,
         <type 'numpy.int16'>,
         <type 'numpy.int32'>,
         <type 'numpy.int32'>,
         <type 'numpy.int64'>],

so there's a repeated int32 type listed there.  I don't know what that
means, but obviously it produces extra tests (possibly redundant?)

- Same for uint:

 'uint': [<type 'numpy.uint8'>,
          <type 'numpy.uint16'>,
          <type 'numpy.uint32'>,
          <type 'numpy.uint32'>,
          <type 'numpy.uint64'>]}

In any case, other than this minor difference, current numpy SVN
passes all tests on Fedora8/64bit and Ubuntu Gutsy/32bit.
