This is getting a bit out of my depth, and I don't normally see
segfault problems with these integrators, but I have a couple of

Does interp_dopri_test run or do you also get a segfault? Radau is a
fortran-based integrator and that can bring extra problems. The bug
report you submitted on SF indicates that you ran that test with
Python 2.6 not 2.5, although since you got a segfault there too it's
possible that it's not a 2.5 vs. 2.6 issue after all. Could it be
something about your 64 bit platform? Are the standard libraries all
slightly different somehow? The segfault is coming from
lib64/libpython2.5.so. What version of gcc are you running? Based on
past experience I recommend 3.1 but 3.3 may also work. I will try to
do some research about getting DLLs working via SWIG on 64 bit
platforms to see if there are known problems.

Is it possible to configure gdb to include debugging symbols? I don't
know what that entails off the top of my head, but it would mean we'd
get a much more detailed report.
