Hi Gyro,

    Sorry for the bug in scipy. Could you give us the output when you
run the tests (e.g. which test failed and segfaulted ?). Something
useful would be the build log (output when run python setup.py
build/install; we need the output when build from scratch, e.g. after
having removed the build directory).
    If you are familiar with gdb, something useful may be a backtrace,
but first, I would like to check whether it is not a problem related to
