I know that this problem has been solved but FWIW everything seems to
work fine under Woody Debian GNU/Linux.

However, at the moment my scipy install seems to have gone crazy.  The
stats module or the ga module seems badly broken.  I cant seem to
import scipy anymore.  I blindly changed all import scipy.stats.rv as
rv lines to import scipy.stats.rv in the ga directory (in my installed
copy) and now scipy seems to load ok.

scipy.test() however does not work anymore.

In [1]: import scipy
In [2]: scipy.test()
TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)


? in test(level=1)

? in test_suite(level=1)

TypeError: harvest_test_suites() got an unexpected keyword argument 'level'

I guess it serves me right to keep updating from CVS and trying. :(
