Just what Bruce said. 

You can run the following to confirm:
np.mean(data - data.mean())

If for some reason you do not want to convert to float64 you can add the result of the previous line to the "bad" mean:
bad_mean = data.mean()
good_mean = bad_mean + np.mean(data - bad_mean)

I know I know, that's pretty outrageous to even suggest, but please
bear with me, I am stumped as you may be:

2-D data file here:

In [3]: data.mean()
Out[3]: 3067.0243839999998

In [4]: data.max()
Out[4]: 3052.4343

In [5]: data.shape
Out[5]: (1000, 1000)

In [6]: data.min()
Out[6]: 3040.498

In [7]: data.dtype
Out[7]: dtype('float32')

A mean value calculated per loop over the data gives me 3045.747251076416
I first thought I still misunderstand how data.mean() works, per axis
and so on, but did the same with a flattenend version with the same

Am I really soo tired that I can't see what I am doing wrong here?
For completion, the data was read by a osgeo.gdal dataset method called
My numpy.__version__ gives me 1.6.1 and my whole setup is based on
Enthought's EPD.
