Hmm, the absence of a file should not cause a segfault.

There should be no Lib/__init__.py, the installed scipy/__init__.py file 
comes from newcore.

If you see `Importing io to scipy` then it means you must have 
already installed newcore with __init__.py. Try updating both newcore and 
newscipy from ñSVN, remove old installation of scipy, reinstall newcore 
and newscipy.
