[Numpy-discussion] unexpected behavior with allclose( scalar, empty array)

Apologies if I've missed the discussion of this, but I was recently
surprised by the following behavior (in svn trunk 4673). The following
code runs without triggering the assertion.

import numpy as np
print np.__version__
a=np.int32(42)
b=np.array([],dtype=np.int32)
assert np.allclose(a,b)

Is this expected behavior of numpy or is this a bug I should report?

Thanks,
Andrew
