 OK, I'm running on 64bit fedora and elicit an illegal instruction error.
 Here is the culprit:

 r = ones((1000,2))

 I suspect a strides problem with memory reference going out of bounds.
 When r = ones((n,2)) the problem begins for me when n >= 127, which is a
 bit odd -- pagesize related, perhaps? The conjugation isn't relevant.

 In [1]: r = ones((1000,2))

 In [2]: rt = ones((2,1000))

 In [3]: dot(r,rt)
 Illegal instruction

 Hmm, normal matrix multiplication fails. I'm changing the severity to
