Good luck, and if they act on this, I would be happy to know how you did.
If we report a segfault Apple will probably think we are to blame. 99.9 % of bug reports come from idiots, and those who screen bug reports are basically payed to hit the ignore button. Indeed, good luck on reporting it.
I think in the short run we will be better off re-implementing cblas_sgemv with cblas_sgemm on Apple OSes. Luckily the error in cblas_sgemv does not silently produce garbage data but segfaults the process, so anyone affected will see it.
Would you consider doing a PR for that?
I believe I can build a 32 / 64 bit numpy binary against ATLAS, but it's certainly much less straightforward.
