 I am getting free(): invalid next size (fast) when i run the code below.

 I am using Ubuntu 9.10 (64 bit) on a MacBook Pro 5,1.
 I am using pyton 2.5 and numpy version 1.4.1

 The code I run to generate the error is:

 from numpy import *
 c = linspace(-pi,pi,5)

 When I hit 'enter' to display the value of C, I get the error:
 *** glibc detected *** python: free(): invalid next size (fast):
 0x000000000264c6a0 ***

 sometimes it crashes at this point, sometimes I have to suspend python and
 kill-9 it.
