I just reinstalled the latest scikits.delaunay package, and I am  
getting a segfault right away, in the first interp statement.  With  
the older version from the scipy.sandbox, I was getting a slow memory  
leak that would segfault after many (thousands of) interpolator/ 
interp calls.

These code bases are different, primarily in the _delaunay.cpp file.   
However, my C is bad, and my C++ is worse, so I am useless beyond  
diffing the files...

I just wanted to point out that there are perhaps two separate issues
