It it helps the debugging, I have a
standard Windows 64-bit configuration. Please let me know when this build
is fixed ... Cheers

The 64 bits
build is experimental on windows - there is one
fundamental issue which I
have not been able to nail down yet. It may
be a numpy bug, a python bug, or
a mingw-w64 bug, I am not sure yet.
But it means that under some conditions,
numpy crashes before import.
If you need a working 64 bits numpy, the
best bet is to build it by
yourself using the MS compilers (the 64 bits
compilers are available
for free if you install the platform SDK 6.0a or
later). But then you
won't be able to build scipy on top of it unless you
manage to use a
64 bits fortran
