Hi Jarrod

Of those tickets, the following are serious:

http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/ticket/605 (a patch is
available?, David Huard)
  Fixing of histogram.

http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/ticket/551 (old regression,
Chuck and Travis)
  Unpickled arrays don't work as expected, because of memory alignment issues.

http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/ticket/748 (old regression, Stefan)
  ifft pads incorrectly.  I can fix this tonight, if someone would
verify that this is, indeed, a bug.

http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/ticket/751 (old/new regression,
Stefan, David C*)
  ALL section not recognised in site.cfg.  In Python 2.6, the DEFAULT
section no longer works.  I replaced it with ALL, but apparently not
everything works as expected.  David has a way to reproduce the
problem, so I hope he can have a look, otherwise I'll try and fix it
