[SciPy-dev] Why does scipy set numpy to ignore all FPU exceptions ?

It took me a while to find this; I wanted to check some underflow in
some code by using seterr(under = "raise"), but I found that it did
not work in my project while working in ipython. I found out that
scipy is the culprit:


Why was this set ? I may be missing something (Travis must had a
reason to set it; the log mentions some tests issues), but this does
not seem right to me, since this means that if you import scipy after
having used seterr, you lose your settings.
