Perhaps this bug is causing your Lib/sparse/sparse.py to not get updated 
as well. 

Some of the errors being reported are due to changes in scipy core.   
The sparse.py file received an appropriate fix.  Somehow this is not 
getting propagated to your installed version of scipy (even though it's 
been checked in to svn).

Please check

<your Python installation site>/scipy/sparse/sparse.py

and compare with

<your svn checkout site>/Lib/sparse/sparse.py

In particular, make sure the spmatrix class defines the 
__array_priority__  attribute.
