Are you sure that you ran the tests against scipy.fftpack with fftw3 
support? There were few bugs that caused some unittests to fail. The bugs 
are now fixed but it would be nice if new patches would not break the 
scipy tests in future (though it's a clever way to get attention:).

Matt, thanks for sending the patches. Fernando, thanks for making sure 
that patches were applied.
