BTW, it was so long ago when I patched SciPy that I've gone through 3
laptops in that period and don't have the files any more.  There were
other issues, but Weave is really all that I care about.  Its a neat
program, but I got a big resentment when I saw the same error.  Sorry
for being a prick about it.  Rob.
