I propose to mark these as knownfail in master, because it has never been an issue and can be worked around if necessary.

See http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/ticket/1559

Looks good. Do we have any idea why this fails only in 2.4?


rgommers commented Jun 5, 2012

From the ticket:

dok_matrix.__radd__ (which has the todense() call) is called for Python >= 2.5, but not
for 2.4. I can't find anything related to this in the "what's new in python 2.5" doc.

The issue seems to have been fixed by #229 (which regenerated SWIG wrappers), so closing.

This seems to not be fixed after all; Scott Sinclair reported these tests as failing on his system with Python 2.4. So committed this PR as 3ba682b.

And backported to 0.11.x in c01cf87.
