Did the superpack installer automatically install numpy to the  
python2.7 directory when present? Even if so, I reckon you could  
simply reinstall python2.7 after the numpy installation (still calling  
python2.6 to use numpy of course...).

Which architecture is this? Being on Snow Leopard, probably x86_46...
I remember encountering similar problems on PPC, which I suspect are  
related to stability issues with Apple's Accelerate framework.
