Windows should not be popping up, unless you're also running doctests with
plot commands. Any idea what they are? If not, can you narrow it down by
running tests for the individual modules?

These things should have been removed but weren't in 1.4.0, I just kept it
that way. It can still be removed of course, but maybe this is better done
(or already done) in trunk?

The test output is very chatty. Again, I wanted to keep things the same as
0.7.1 except for fixing the binary incompatibility issue. For 0.8 I think
all these warnings should be cleaned up, but does it make sense to do that
in this bug fix release?

The same goes for the build output by the way, long lists of complaints
about tab characters, unused variables, etc. Would be good to start cleaning
that up for 0.8.
