AFAIK Python 2.6 is not supported at this point, I recall there being  
known issues with 0.6.0 and py2.6.

You may have more luck with the latest svn snapshots (instructions are  
at http://scipy.org/Download ), but if you want to run stable you're  
probably better off installing python 2.5.2 instead.
