Description pav 2012-06-13 10:54:15 EDT
The function `scipy.special.stdtr` produces invalid results on Fedora 17, which makes the statistical t-test in `scipy.stats` similarly produce invalid results.

See the end of your build logs for the relevant test failure (test_stats.test_ttest_ind):


and this bug report from the user:


This problem seems specific to Fedora. I'm not able to reproduce it on Ubuntu 12.04 (which has gcc 4.6.3). The problematic function is `stdtr` originating from file `scipy/special/cephes/stdtr.c`.

Perhaps the gcc version in Fedora 17 miscompiles this file?

This appears to be fixed in scipy-0.12.0-2.fc18
