[Numpy-discussion] Numpy Segmentation Fault

Hi all,

I am getting numpy segmentation fault on a custom install of python to a

I am running this example code.

*import numpy
import numpy.linalg
for i in range(10):
    print str(i),'-------------------------------'*

I have been trying to debug this for the last two weeks and with no success
so far.
The same code runs fine with Python-2.6.1 and numpy-1.2.1 but seg faults in
Python-2.6.4 and numpy-1.3.0
 Also, the error occurs non-deterministically in the loop and sometimes it
does not even occur at all.

I have tried reinstalling and rebuilding python but even that does not help.
Please find attached the information which I think might be relevant for us
to figure out the root cause.

System info

*Python 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Apr  6 2010, 04:49:11)
[GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)] on linux2
