[SciPy-user] linalg.expm() Illegal Instruction Error?

Hi Folks,

I'm having a bit of a weird problem. linalg.expm() is failing for  
matrices larger than size (51,51), and reports "Illegal instruction"  
and forces python to quit. I'm not sure where this is coming from. I  
created the following routine:
for i in range(10,128):
	A = random.rand(i,i)
	B = linalg.expm(A)
	print i

which fails with "Illegal instruction" when you get to 51.

Has anyone seen this before?
