I run the PyDSTool example "run_all_tests.py" on 
Some tests failed, too. These failures seems to be 
connected to 64 bit.

There seems to be another problem wrt fminbound.

fminbound(func, x1, x2, args=(), 
xtol=1.0000000000000001e-05, maxfun=500, full_output=0, 
     Bounded minimization for scalar functions.


       func : callable f(x,*args)
           Objective function to be minimized (must accept 
and return scalars).
       x1, x2 : float or array scalar
           The optimization bounds.
       args : tuple
           Extra arguments passed to function.
       xtol : float
           The convergence tolerance.
       maxfun : int
           Maximum number of function evaluations allowed.
       full_output : bool
           If True, return optional outputs.
       disp : int
           If non-zero, print messages.
               0 : no message printing.
               1 : non-convergence notification messages 
               2 : print a message on convergence too.
               3 : print iteration results.

     :Returns: (xopt, {fval, ierr, numfunc})

AFAIK the latest change wrt fminbound is

r5205 | stefan | 2008-11-29 13:41:23 +0100 (Sa, 29. Nov 
2008) | 2 lines

In `fminbound`, raise an error if non-scalar bounds are 
specified [patch by
Neil Muller].  Closes #544.
