Indeed - not building scipy.sparse is clearly a temporary workaround, I 
would not advise to do this as a long term solution. Another obvious 
thing to try is building the scipy's trunk, or re-generating the c++ 
sources from swig. The latter, by generating a different file, may be 
able to exercise another codepath in g++, and avoid the crash depending 
on where the crash happens in g++.

Ideally, if you could find-out what part of the code causes the crash 
and report the bug, we may be able to implement a workaround in scipy.
