The problem is that I have both Numeric[1] and the new scipy installed. When 
both are installed, the Numeric headers are picked up by default during scipy 
compilation. By forcing them to pick up the scipy headers, the problem was 
resolved. But it is a rather strange coincidence that the error results in 
truncated numbers rather than something drastic.


[1] Reason: It will be a while before all my Numeric-based libraries are 
ported to the new scipy; porting is trivial, but regression testing takes 
time, especially given that the new scipy C API is not quite stable yet and 
that I haven't yet ported boost.python.numeric to scipy.
