It seems that tests in stats module sometimes just fail. 
When I repeatedly hit

>>> scipy.stats.test(10)

then the change that some of the tests will fail is about 1/20.

I am just ignoring these failures as they may be due to too strict 
conditions for estimating the success of the statistical methods in stats. 
Sometimes the random data for testing functions is not very favorable..
