[SciPy-user] Trouble with linsolve

Just a guess, but I think the problem is just that usually when people
solve sparse equations the matrix is sparse, but the RHS vector is
dense.   I don't know if UMFPACK or SuperLU can actually handle a
sparse RHS vector, but if they can, then it sounds like a SciPy bug.

I guess it should work if you convert your 'f' to a dense array before
making the calls to the solver.
