[Numpy-discussion] use of concatenate with subclass of ndarray

I spoke too soon, this code fails with the example you gave:

def test_concatenate(self):
  unit_ary_1 = UnitArray(numpy.array((1,2,3)), units=meters)
  unit_ary_2 = UnitArray(numpy.array((1,2,3)), units=meters)

  # create another instance with different units. This instance
  # is never used, but calls __new__ with different units
  unit_ary_3 = UnitArray(numpy.array((1,2,3)), units=feet)

  new_unit_ary = numpy.concatenate([unit_ary_1, unit_ary_2])
  self.assertEqual(new_unit_ary.units, meters)

Any other ideas?
