Hash collisions and joblib

Hi list,

For all those using joblib: I have had reports of nasty hash collisions,
resulting in e.g. wrong answers in joblib.cache.

Thanks to Pauli Virtanen, I have just fixed a bug responsible for such
hash collisions. I have made a beta release of joblib with the fix
(version 0.7.0c). Please upgrade. Also, if you still have fishy
behaviors/hash collisions, please inform me.
