Thanks. You mean actually when numpy handle masked array, it will first
treat all the base data, and then apply the mask after the treatment.
and normally the base data of maksed elements will very likely to intrigure
these errors, and you will see a lot errory warning or print in the process,
and will make it impossible to see the error information your want to see
for those elements that are not masked but still can intriguer the error
you would like to see or check. I didn't realize this. It's a good to
overwrite the error setting.

thanks for your explanation.
