Package: python-scipy
Version: 1.1.0-4
Followup-For: Bug #919929

Curiously, only python2 is affected now.
Same sympton, MemoryError, now in TestInt32Overflow.test_matvecs and

Assuming the MemoryError is again triggered by excessive warnings, the
warning generating the most messages now is

  RemovedInPytest4Warning: MarkInfo objects are deprecated as they contain merged marks which are hard to deal with correctly.
    Please use node.get_closest_marker(name) or node.iter_markers(name).

Actually I think the problem is in python-pytest, not in python-scipy
anyway. The file references are 

pytest is due for an upgrade from 3.10.1 to 4.4.0.

I'm inclined not to be troubled by this, not as far as scipy goes,
anyway. I expect it will clear out with natural upgrades post-buster.

CI testing isn't performed in buster, is it?  If it's important to get
a clean buster CI test then those 2 tests could be switched off in
python2 if desired.
