I had to reinstall scipy, matplotlib, etc. when I changed from 1.6.0
back to 1.5.1.

It also looked like the behavior of numpy.testing was different (Ie.,
I was getting failures for my tests that pass under 1.5.1 at the
specified precision for assert_almost_equal), but this is a separate
issue that I'll have to explore later.
