[Numpy-discussion] Segfaults when trying to build an array using the description in array protocol

Apparently something wrong went in latest version of numpy SVN:

In [4]:numpy.__version__

In [5]:numpy.empty((1,), dtype='i8')
Out[5]:array([-5193749191705487200], dtype=int64)

In [6]:numpy.empty((1,), dtype=[('p', 'i8')])
Segmentation fault

This usually worked well with older versions:

In [7]:numpy.__version__

In [8]:numpy.empty((1,), dtype=[('p', 'i8')])
Out[8]:array([(-5192306666809247592L,)], dtype=(void,8))

BTW, which is the recommended way to report that sort of things, the
list or the Trac interface for SVN numpy? I'd like to start using the
second, but I haven't manage to create a user for reporting issues.
