This exact problem is specific to IDLE - I don't know what triggers it.
Today, the best solution for a 64 bits numpy on windows is to built it
yourself with MS compilers - the distributed one is built with mingw
compilers, and there still seems to be some stability problems with
those. Unfortunately, as the mingw debugger does not work either on 64
bits archs, finding the problem is quite hard.
