I'm not familiar with the numpy codebase, could anyone help me figure out
where I should look to try to fix this bug? I've got a nice set of
generators that work with nosetools to test all combinations of numerical
dtypes, including combinations of scalars, arrays, and iterables of each
type. In my quantities package, just testing multiplication yields 1031
failures, all of which appear to be caused by this bug (#1026 on trak) or
bug #826.

Thanks,
Darren
