Could you be a more specific on where exactly scipy test crashes?
For example, try

If scipy.test dies while testing scipy.linalg or scipy.lib.lapack then
what compiler version are you using? If its pre gcc 3.3.3 then note that
lapack library (that are used for completing atlas lapack) must be 
compiled with -O2 (not with -O3) flag due to a compiler bug.
