I get different output on my system (Fedora Core 4):

scipy.__scipy_version__ 0.4.2_1422
Numeric.__version__ 24.1

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "andrew.py", line 10, in ?
ValueError: Invalid type for array

Notice that in my case the conversion of a list of Scipy scalars to a 
Numeric array fails.
