Did you check Pythonpath and egg-overriding-pythonpath issues? There's 
also some magic in the autosummary extension, but it's not *too* black, 
so I'd be surprised if it was behind these troubles.

Perhaps it even has ulimit, being a sort of POSIX system?

C reference guide is probably the correct place. Since the topic is a bit 
orthogonal to anything else there currently, I'd suggest creating a new 
file c-api.npymath.rst and linking it to the toctree in c-api.rst
