I'm not sure what you are doing.  Is this just running Pyhthon?  
Presumably it is picking up some PYTHONSTARTUP file and running it.  
But, I have no idea what that is on your system.

Doing exactly what you do works for me.

What is actually being run to cause the segfault?

What directory are you runing from? 

Have you re-built scipy after upgrading numpy?
