I've got another somewhat general question: since it would probably be  
nice to
have a test for this, I found one could simply add something along the  
lines of

assert_equal(a.shape, x.shape)

to test_io.py - test_shaped_dtype(self)
or should one generally create a new test for such things (might still  
be better
in this case, since test_shaped_dtype does not really test different  
ndim)?

Cheers,
