I'm getting exact same problem. Running ActivePython 2.2.1 build 222 on 
Windows 2000. Both SciPy 0.2.0 103.3564 and 103.3567 (the latest) 
exhibit this problem. I can't even load a baby array like:

1 2
3 4

Tried both with CRLF (Windows) and LF (Unix) line terminators. They both 
  cause crashes with the same backtrace.
