[Numpy-discussion] Segfault on wrong use of indexing
Mon Sep 17 12:35:51 CDT 2007
Thanks for the fast reply.
Everything works fine with a repos checkout ('1.0.4.dev4045').
I was using the default package of Ubuntu Feisty, and must admit that
I like to stay close to the package manager, especially with python
stuff. With Gutsy on the doorstep, perhaps this not a serious issue (I
see Gutsy uses 1.0.3). I have tested this behavior on three machines
running Ubunut Feisty with similar result.

sometimes a segfault does not occur, that is:
>>> import numpy as n
>>> a = n.random.rand(4,2)
>>> a[,:] = [2,2]
array([[ 2. , 0. ],
[ 0.23502786, 0.13993698],
[ 0.9598841 , 0.74795152],
[ 0.95212598, 0.52698868]])
, which is quite spooky. (This is with old numpy of course)
