(etc. -- note to self: use scipy for regression testing :-)

nnz is coming from
nnz = self.indptr[-1]
where self.indptr is an array of Int32.

Hmm, this corresponds to the behaviour I just responded to Sebastien de
Menten about. The problem is that nnz is *not* an Python integer; it's
an array, so the slice fails.

I think I was wrong in that email about saying this was expected
behaviour :-)

This comes from the recent fix of a[0,0] and a[0][0] returning
the same type. Either change that back, or else we need to spruce up the
slicing logic to consider 0-dimensional integer arrays as scalars.

A minimal test case:

a = Numeric.array([5,6,7,8])
b = Numeric.array([0,1,2,3], 'i')
n = b[-1]
assert a[:n] == 8

(I'm not tackling this right now)
