[SciPy-user] problems with stats

I've encountered two problems with the binomial distribution in the
stats module. The first is trivial and I believe just an argument
bdtr domain error
(the answer should be .125 of course)
The second is a little more significant. I'm trying to invert the
binomial distribution using ppf. I looked at distributions.py
def _ppf(self, q, n, pr):
vals = ceil(special.bdtrik(q,n,pr))
vals1 = vals-1
temp = special.bdtr(vals1,n,pr)
return where(temp >= q, vals1, vals)
and ppf is in fact implemented, but when I try to run it I get an
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File ".\site-packages\scipy\stats\distributions.py", line 2371, in
TypeError: _ppf() takes exactly 4 arguments (3 given)
Does anyone know what's going on. Am I misusing something?
