Scipy 0.7.0 on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx with Python 2.6.5.

At the top of diffev.py's solve() method is a loop that runs per
generation of the genetic algorithm, you might consider placing a
"print gen" statement there to see if it is running or stuck somehow.

The virtual server I'm using has 4 CPUs so I plan to run the
distribution fitting in parallel.  Here are current timing results
fitting both loc and scale, in parallel these would have taken 207
seconds (gamma time):

distribution: powerlaw took 69.5095369816 seconds to run
de parameters [ 1.31332767  0.55933617  2.45766383]
nnlf: 23.3610045864

distribution: beta took 47.2591450214 seconds to run
de parameters [ 0.70567183  0.6011756   0.607       2.41      ]
nnlf: 7.45846316363

distribution: gamma took 206.991358995 seconds to run
