another problem in your case are the unit roots
array([ -1.00000000e+00+0.j, -7.77156117e-16+1.j, -7.77156117e-16-1.j,
I don't remember whether lfilter supports those. Or, if setting
explicit initial conditions would help.
Or, if deconvolution makes sense with a nonstationary sequence (infinite ?).
