A few days ago on scipy-user and earlier today on numpy-discussion I wrote:

    If I execute

        from scipy.stats import distribution

    at the interpreter prompt I get a segfault.

Stepping through the suspect code yielded very strange results, so I tried
recompiling cephesmodule.c with -O0.  That seems to have solved the problem
for now.  I guess that means it's a GCC optimizer bug.
