Changes (by pv):

 Yep, SuperLU has some bugs when pivoting singular matrices.

 Some sort of fix applied in r6354 and r6355. I'm not sure if the resulting
 L and U factors make sense after this fix, but that probably doesn't
 matter since Scipy does not expose them anyway and only reports an error.
