[SciPy-user] Least Squares error message.

What do you mean? It is rather a status message telling you why 
termination occured.

If I try Travis's example I also get

In [10]: reload mytest
-------> reload(mytest)
(array([-10.33422249,  32.88295995,   3.7880052 ]), 'Both actual and 
predicted relative reductions in the sum of squares\n  are at most 

My default values are:

leastsq(func, x0, args=(), Dfun=None, full_output=0, col_deriv=0, 
ftol=1.49012e-008, xtol=1.49012e-008, gtol=0.0, maxfev=0, epsfcn=0.0, 
factor=100, diag=None)

The 0.0000 is in fact 'ftol' = 1.49012e-008 (in my opinion).
