[MATRIX-SIG] Bus error in LapackError

After installing NumPy-1.0b3 on SunOS 5.5.1, python1.5 always
crashed, when I imported lapack_lite.     

Gdb says:
(gdb) c
>>> import lapack_lite

Program received signal SIGBUS, Bus error.
0xef3e94dc in LapackError ()

I am under the impression, that  the C compiler (SC4.0) does not initialize 
static variables to zero. I guess it is a compiler/linker bug, but changing
     static PyObject *ErrorObject;
     static PyObject *ErrorObject = NULL;
makes NumPy running fine.
