I've committed it because at least your patch does allow a current build to 
complete the scipy-full test suite:

Ran 1366 tests in 106.441s


Now, I don't know that part of the code well, so it may be that a different 
solution is better in the long run.  But just minutes before your email came 
in, I updated svn and tried to build scipy on my home box for the first time, 
and was getting segfaults on the test suite.  I hadn't looked into the problem 
yet, so you saved me a lot of work :)

At least I can confirm that your patch allows the test suite to complete, so 
even if in the long run Travis wants to provide a different solution, this 
allows those running up-to-date SVN to continue using it without these segfaults.
