I'd like to confirm that you see the same results when running your
script:

[[ 4.  3.  2.  1.]
 [ 4.  3.  2.  1.]]
[[-1.          3.12520003  2.11439991  1.01719999  1.87479997 -1.        ]
 [-1.          3.12520003  2.11439991  1.01719999  1.87479997 -1.        ]]
[[-1.          3.0996666   2.0999999   1.34300005  1.90033329 -1.        ]
 [-1.          3.0996666   2.0999999   1.34300005  1.90033329 -1.        ]]
