OK. I run one of the test machines ("Debian-Sid"), can you help
me completely and properly configure it?

I'm testing with python 2.5.4. There is one python test failing for
me ( which produces an exception:

File "../libs/python/test/", line 23, in __main__
Failed example:
        from numarray import array, all
        print 1
        check_numeric_array_rich_slice('numarray', 'NDArray', all)
Exception raised:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/python2.5/", line 1228, in __run
        compileflags, 1) in test.globs
      File "<doctest __main__[4]>", line 6, in <module>
        check_numeric_array_rich_slice('numarray', 'NDArray', all)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numarray/", line 652, in _dualbroadcast
        raise ValueError("Arrays have incompatible shapes");
    ValueError: Arrays have incompatible shapes

I'm willing to help debug this, but I don't know where to begin.
