Thanks for the information.  This looks like a genuine bug.  You should 
not be getting this much of a difference.  Is the problem related to gcc 
3.4.2?  Is anybody using that particular compiler?   The problem is the 
statlib.swilk  function.  Apparently, It is not returning the correct 
value on your system.   This function is in Fortran and so either gcc 
3.4.2 is compiling it differently or the f2py-generated interface is not 
functioning correctly.

Could you manually run the test that is failing and give the output of 
stats.shapiro(x2) using the x2 in the test_morestats.py file near line 40?
