Comment:

 This is an issue with the array interface.  Numarray is not exporting
 version 3 of the Python side of the interface (and NumPy is no longer
 looking for the other attributes that numarray is exporting).

 Therefore conversion is occurring through the generic "sequence" interface
 (and numarray.strings.array's clip on item access).  As a result, NumPy
 thinks the size of each element is 1.

 Support for version 2 of the Python side of the array interface is gone in
 NumPy 1.0.
