All I did was 'import scipy' and then run 'scipy.test()' so I do did not 
tell it to run any doctests.

David Huard did bring the histogram issue up but apparently it was no addressed:

If it is not removed then can you please clarify what 'Numpy 1.4' means?

I understand this and know that there is a lot for scipy to improve on 
especially in updating the tests (in my view test should not trigger 

You have done a great job in getting a functional release for both numpy 
and scipy for windows. Do you have the source release for Linux?
