What is broken is calculating eigenvalues of complex-valued sparse
matrices and iterative solution of complex-valued linear equations.
I.e., nothing obscure.
A likely explanation is that win32 + Numpy 1.9 is a less common platform,
and users whose code started failing just infrequently do not report bugs
as easily...

Perhaps the arrays are aligned by chance? I don't think the test suite
repeats the complex valued intent(inout) parameter test many times.

David's test case is this:
n = 4
x = np.zeros(n * 3, dtype="D")
_dummy.zfoo(x, n)
where the argument is declared as "double complex, dimension(3*n),
intent(inout)"
in f2py. The ARPACK stuff in Scipy also does pretty much just this.
