I ran across several more. missing returns and a little inconsistency
with shape being defined as "shape" or "a" a few other things. I just
stopped posting them to the list

I had started a simple set of tests for the rand functions to catch
problems like the one resulting from the way the enthought distr. was
calculating randn(), I was just finishing that and making note of what
I say in the docs as I did so. I am moving back to the scipy docs
