The same here (OS X, Python 2.3.4, ipython 0.6.5). The problem is due 
to the way in which numarray performs its tests. It relies on the 
Python module doctest that execute the script in doc strings. I think 
that since in numarray doc strings the expected output is written in 
the standard Python way (i.e. >>> foo) while ipython writes out 
something like "Out[n]: foo" the checks fail.
