[Numpy-discussion] Python 3.2 crashes numpy with undefined symbol PyCObject_AsVoidPtr

Since I was testing the 1.5 beta, I also tested the alpha release of 
Python 3.2 on Linux 64-bit (gcc version 4.4.4 20100630 (Red Hat 
4.4.4-10) (GCC)). While my other Python versions passed the tests (once 
I copied the necessary tools directory for Python3.1), Python3.2 has 
problems so I created ticket 1571:

The minor change is that string.maketrans function, depreciated in 
Python 3.1, has been removed.

However the more serious problem is that both 1.5 beta and the current 
svn version crashed:

$ python3.2 -c "import numpy; numpy.test()"
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/site-packages/numpy/__init__.py", line

File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/site-packages/numpy/core/__init__.py", 
line 5, in <module>
from . import multiarray
undefined symbol: PyCObject_AsVoidPtr

This warning that does not appears in Python3.1:
