M and N aren't defined in this conditional branch, so the following happens (on current master):

In [1]: import scipy.sparse as ss

In [2]: ss.coo_matrix(None, (4,5))
UnboundLocalError                         Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-2-62651dfca412> in <module>()
----> 1 ss.coo_matrix(None, (4,5))

/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/scipy/sparse/coo.pyc in __init__(self, arg1, shape, dtype, copy)
    163             warn('coo_matrix(None, shape=(M,N)) is deprecated, '
    164                     'use coo_matrix( (M,N) ) instead', DeprecationWarning)
--> 165             idx_dtype = get_index_dtype(maxval=max(M, N))
    166             self.shape = shape
    167    = np.array([], getdtype(dtype, default=float))

UnboundLocalError: local variable 'M' referenced before assignment

The deprecation warning indicates that this kind of constructor call isn't recommended, so another alternative would be to remove the special handling altogether. For now, this PR fixes the bug.

This has been deprecated since at least 2007, but it was only broken in 62ec92f of January 2014. I'll merge the patch but submit a new PR removing the code path.
