```Hi
I have a trouble with  iterative linear equation solver in sparse linalg

>>> A=np.random.rand(100,100)
>>> b=np.random.rand(100,1)
>>> x1,info=bicg(A,b)
>>> print info
0
>>> x,info=bicg(A,b,x0=x1)
>>> print info
0
Wheather setting guessing value or not,  solutions should be the same if
both calculations were converged.
But x is ridiculous values

>>> x1

When I set x0, I always get some very small value as solution but I don't
know why it give us original solution

Please, help me if  you have a piece of knowhow to this phenomena
