Ah yes, using the f2py functionality is a correct fix, too, now that I 
remember it again :)

I agree that it's best to just go ahead with the workaround already, and 
if the Atlas/LAPACK people find a fix, we can take the workarounds out.

(Note that the eig-headaches.diff patch contains

    for a in arrays:
+       break
        a = numpy.asarray(a)

Maybe it's best to remove the whole loop?)
