#1113: scipy.linalg.eig crash on LinAlgError
 Reporter:  anjiro        |       Owner:  somebody    
     Type:  defect        |      Status:  needs_review
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  0.8.0       
Component:  scipy.linalg  |     Version:  0.7.0       
 Keywords:  eig           |  
Changes (by warren):

  * status:  new => needs_review


 In the example, S and C are not the same shape.  eig() doesn't check that
 the arrays have the same shape, which apparently leads to a crash.

 The attached patch adds a check of the array sizes to eig(). It also adds
 a couple tests.

 I'll wait for another developer to take a look at the changes and confirm
 that this is a reasonable fix before checking it in.
