Excellent! I no longer get segfaults or bus errors on my machine. Thank you.

On an unrelated note, I would like to propose that we get rid of
scipy.stats in scipy_core. At the moment, the only things there are a
few aliases (which can be moved, and I would like to deprecate; they
only existed as separate entities in the RANLIB world to work around
interface issues that no longer exist) and a private helper function to
help pickling RandomState instances.

However, scipy.stats (scipy_core) is now littered with non-uniform RNG
functions (10 more with my last checkin!). These are names that we would
like to use for full distribution objects in scipy.stats proper.
codeconverter.py can change RandomArray to scipy.lib.mtrand instead.
