    def noncentral_chisquare(self, df, nonc, size=None):
        """Noncentral Chi^2 distribution.

        noncentral_chisquare(df, nonc, size=None) -> random values
        cdef ndarray odf, ononc
        cdef double fdf, fnonc
        fdf = PyFloat_AsDouble(df)
        fnonc = PyFloat_AsDouble(nonc)
        if not PyErr_Occurred():
            if fdf <= 1:
                raise ValueError("df <= 0") <<<????

I think this message should be "df <= 1"?

[>>>Peck, Jon] 
Isn't it rather that the message is correct but the test is wrong?  Shouldn't it be 
if fdf <= 0  ?
