Some parts of scipy is broken at the moment, and possibly needs rebuilding.

import scipy.stats

What should happen:
Proper import of the package

What really happens:
ValueError: numpy.dtype does not appear to be the correct type object

See more info at

Additional info:
* python-numpy 1.4.0-1
* python-scipy 0.7.1-4

Local rebuild of python-scipy fixed this issue, confirming the info at the numpy bug tracker.
This task depends upon

Hmmm.... 0.7.1-4 was the rebuild. See  FS#18164 . Maybe something else is going on.

As I tested:
If I rebuild 0.7.1-4 on my computer, the problem is gone.
If I upgrade to the official 0.7.1-4 on another computer, it shows the symptoms...

Sorry, looked for open tickets, but didn't check the closed ones...

Same problem here. If I recompile on my box, everything is OK, with the official package, it shows the same problem.

maybe he didn't look to see if at building is pulling the new version of python-numpy
