The function numpy.linalg.eig sometimes crashes on openSUSE for certain
matricies as indicated in the following ticket:

This appears to be due to some build or linking problem on openSUSE, as the
software does not exhibit this problem on other distributions (except for

A good practice of testing the scipy/numpy build would be run the following
tests suites in python:

import numpy

and see if everything succeeds.

The same goes for scipy:

import scipy

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download script from the ticket above
2. Run: python and see if it executes properly.
3. Another test is to run: numpy.test(verbose=2) as described in the "Details"
Actual Results:

*** glibc detected *** python: corrupted double-linked list:
0x08ae21d8 ***

Expected Results:
1.0 for, and "OK" for all the tests in case of numpy.test()
