Comment:

 This occurs since the multiarray module (and, hence, also umath) needs
 some initialization before it works correctly, and apparently some cleanup
 code assumes the initialization really has been performed before the
 interpreter is exited. The initialization is done on the Python side when
 `numpy.core` is imported.

 I don't think this is a bug that can occur during normal operation (you
 don't get it from `import numpy.core.umath`), so closing as a wontfix.
