Numpy 0.9.5 + pylab 0.86.2 = python.exe crash

After upgrading to numpy 0.9.5 (numpy-0.9.5.win32-py2.4.exe) running the following script causes a crash of python.exe:
import pylab


In my .matplotlibrc file I have the following:

backend : WXAgg
numerix : numpy

Reinstalling numpy 0.9.4 fixed the problem.

Matplotlib version is 0.86.2-win32-py2.4
I also tried reinstalling matplotlib, but that didn’t help.
