OK, The following modules all imported without a problem:

import Numeric
import scipy
import scipy.ga
import scipy.interpolate
import scipy.sparse
import scipy.gplt
import scipy.io
import scipy.plt
import scipy.special
import scipy.linalg
import scipy.stats
import scipy.cluster
import scipy.optimize
import scipy.cow
import scipy.xplt
import scipy.fftpack
import scipy.integrate
import scipy.signal
import scipy.xxx
import scipy_base
import scipy_test
import scipy_distutils
import scipy_distutils.command

scipy.test() causes the seg fault.
