[SciPy-User] scipy unit test failures

I built scipy for the first time (0.7.1). No different than building
numpy, it just takes longer. Somebody did something right when
designing all this.

I get 16 failures. They all look similar to this:

FAIL: test_identity (test_construct.TestConstructUtils)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/scipy/sparse/tests/test_construct.py",
line 70, in test_identity
    assert_equal( I.dtype, 'int8' )
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/testing/utils.py",
line 284, in assert_equal
    raise AssertionError(msg)
Items are not equal:
 ACTUAL: dtype('int8')
 DESIRED: 'int8'

Is this anything to worry about? Or it is just a missing .type in the
unit tests?
