[SciPy-dev] Please stress-test SVN version pf matlab reader

For those of you interested in the matlab reader in scipy - a bout of
'flu left me with only enough energy to try and work out the last
undocumented bits of the matlab file format.  I _believe_ that the
current  SVN version of the reader:

import scipy.io as sio
a = sio.loadmat('your_matfile_here.mat')

should successfully read any non-HDF matlab-written matfile - and this
is just to ask if those of you, with mat files lying around, could try
out the latest SVN version, and let me know that I am wrong, most
usefully with some way of me being able to reproduce the problem.

I also have the hope / belief that the scipy reader should be
performing at round about the same speed as matlab to read the same
file - please let me know if this is way off too.

Thanks a lot,
