It works ok for me with python 2.5.1 on a mac and python 2.6.1 on 
linux.  That doesn't help you, but it may be a clue at some point.

Is it only the test scripts that are executable, or is it everything 
that gets installed?

Does it affect packages other than numpy / scipy?  If so, we can suspect 
distutils and/or ubuntu, rather than numpy.
