dtype() examples that used to work

The following did once work in NumPy:

>>> dtype([int16])
>>> dtype([[int16]])
>>> dtype([uint,int32])
>>> dtype(['f8','S10'])

but now they all generate a "TypeError: data type not understood". Why?
I could not find the answer in help(dtype), the RecordArrays tutorial on 
scipy.org, the NumPy release notes, nor in the NumPy book.
