Hi Chris, 

Your tests are always very valuable.  I want to verify that you rebuit 
the source tree before installing the new version: i.e.

rm -fr build/
python setup.py install

Also, just for good measure you should remove the old scipy directory 
where it was previously installed, and any include/python/scipy  
directories that may be lingering from old installs

I just want to make sure this is a real problem.  I'll track it down if 
it is.
