Comment(by rgommers):

 About the unit test: you applied the slow decorator, that's all you can do
 probably. Or maybe we need @dec.very_slow ...

 A few other points:

   - {{{tempfile.mktemp()}}} is deprecated, use {{{mkstemp()}}} or
   - don't use assert but assert_() from numpy.testing. The builtin assert
 gets stripped when byte-compiling with -O.
   - don't use capitalized variable names.
   - use separate lines for {{{try: ..}}}, like:

 except MemoryError:
 except WindowsError:
