Thanks for that, but I'd already tried it and found the same failures. 

However, I also found that on my version of Ubuntu (10.04 LTS), which includes
NumPy 1.3.0, running "numpy.test(verbose=3)" yielded the following:

nose.config: INFO: Excluding tests matching ['f2py_ext','f2py_f90_ext','gen_ext',
'pyrex_ext', 'swig_ext', 'array_from_pyobj']

I'm not sure where this nose config comes from, but at least someone else knows
about some of these failures; presumably they are not important. My next step 
was going to be searching some mailing lists/contacting the packager...
