First this is a numpy issue that should be on the numpy list - a small
self-contained example will help.

About 6 months ago Pierre added Changeset 8416 that had a fix for
ticket 1473 (http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/1473). This should
be in numpy 1.5. If that does not help, please either add to that
ticket or create a new one.

Patches are welcome that allow numpy to read unicode file in Python
2.4+ (as I recognize that it is easier in Python 3).
