#253: covariance output of leastsq "backwards"
 Reporter:  farrowch        |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect          |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal          |   Milestone:          
Component:  scipy.optimize  |     Version:          
 Severity:  normal          |    Keywords:          
 I've compared the covariance matrix from the output of
 scipy.optimize.minpack.leastsq to that of another minimizer (not part of
 scipy) to find that the leastsq covariance matrix is "backwards". By this
 I mean cov[i,j] should be cov[-i-1, -j-1].
