Comment(by matador):

 thanks again for your help. I finally solved this issue, but I am not sure
 how. I have the impression that it was related to the use of a numpy.array
 of dtype float32 as the return value of the jacobian. But I must say that
 I didn't checked it. In fact, it turned out that leastsq is not suited to
 my problem (which have too strong local minima where leastsq gets happily
 trapped :D).

 Once again thanks for your answers, and I apologize for not giving more
 accurate hints on the source of the issue as unfortunately I made too many
 changes to my code to track it down.
