#299: gammaincinv gives incorrect answers
 Reporter:  djcmackay      |        Owner:  cookedm 
     Type:  defect         |       Status:  assigned
 Priority:  normal         |    Milestone:  0.7     
Component:  scipy.special  |      Version:          
 Severity:  normal         |   Resolution:          
 Keywords:  gammainc       |  
Comment (by cookedm):

 `gammaincinv(a, y)` is computed as `gammainccinv(a, 1-y)`, so if `y` is
 small enough that `1 == 1-y` you'll get 0. Getting around this means
 implementing `gammaincinv` for values of `y` near 0.
