 NumPy 1.5.0 beta 2 built with msvc9/mkl for Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.1 (32
 and 64 bit) reports many (> 200) warnings.

 The warnings are of the type "Warning: invalid value encountered in" for
 the functions reduce, fmax, fmin, logaddexp, maximum, greater, less_equal,
 greater_equal, absolute, and others.

 When using MSVC compilers, ordered comparisons involving NaN raise an
 exception [1], i.e. set the 'invalid' x87 status bit.

 The attached patch silences those warnings during the numpy tests. It
 basically wraps the warning emitting code into:

 err = np.seterr(invalid='raise')

 The patch also silences the "divide by zero encountered in log" warning in
 the masked array module tests. This warning is also observed on other
