Compile scipy in ABS with arparck preinstalled, then you will get segment fault when running scipy.test() or using some arpack related functions. The pre-compiled python-scipy in the repos is fine, which, I think, is compiled without arpack. The problem only occurs you compile from source with arpack installed. I workarround solution is that, remove arpack, compile scipy in ABS, then install arpack again. Everything is fine.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
python-scipy 0.7.1-3
arpack 2.1-3

Steps to reproduce:
Just complie scipy in ABS with arparck installed in system. Then load python shell, import scipy and run scipy.test(). U will get segment fault around the non_symmetric eigen value testing.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  The package itself has not a bug, we can't guess about segfaults by X packages installed on your system.

Packages should be built in a clean chroot, so this isn't an issue actually. If the packages inside the repo haven't been built with arpack installed, then this is not a bug.
