#1206: test_decomp.test_lapack_misaligned fails
 Reporter:  schliepm      |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect        |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  0.8.0   
Component:  scipy.linalg  |     Version:  0.7.0   
 Keywords:                |  
 The call to solve fails:
   def test_lapack_misaligned():
       for (func, args, kwargs) in [

 Debugged so far: solve() (in linalg/basic.py) is called twice nevertheless
 that only one RHS is given. The first call changes the vector b so that
 the first 5 elements of b become Inf resp. NaN. Then the second call must
 fail because the parameter check upon the function entry fails.

 The test will be passed correctly if overwrite_b=False is specified.

 I attach the output of the test below.
