Comment (by edschofield):

 Yes, Robert, good point. cscadd and most of the other Fortran functions
 require sorted row/column indices. If we sort the indices manually after
 >>> a[3, 0] = -1
 by swapping the first two elements of a.data and a.rowind, the addition
 works correctly.

 So the problem is that the cscsetel function isn't sorting the rows
