[Numpy-discussion] ticket 788: possible blocker

Jarrod et al.,
I just ran into a nasty bug, described in ticket 788: under some
circumstances, which I don't understand, the astype method fails to
return a copy and returns the original array instead. It causes bizarre
behavior in basemap (Jeff Whitaker's mapping toolkit for matplotlib),
which is where I stumbled over it.
The ticket includes a pickled array that illustrates the behavior with
1.2.0.dev5150--at least on my system (ubuntu feisty, 32-bit).
