Binaries built from the numpy 1.4.x branch do crash on Python 2.7 
because of this: http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/1345. The fix is 
easy to backport (attached). Until yesterday another reason not to 
release numpy 1.4.1 binaries for Python 2.7 was the projected use of 
PyCapsule instead of PyCObject in numpy 1.5+.
