[Numpy-discussion] [numpy-discussion] searchsorted bug

Hi,

The following gives the wrong answer:

In [2]: A = array(['a','aa','b'])

In [3]: B = array(['d','e'])

In [4]: A.searchsorted(B)
Out[4]: array([3, 0])

The answer should be [3,3]. I've come across this while trying to come
up with an ismember function which works for strings (setmember1d
doesn't seems to assume numerical arrays).

Thanks,
James
