[Numpy-discussion] numpy.ma bug: need sanity check in masked_where

I just tripped over what boils down to the sequence given below.  It 
would be useful if the error in line 53 were trapped right away; as it 
is, it results in a masked array that looks reasonable but fails in a 
non-obvious way.


In [52]:x = [1,2]

In [53]:y = ma.masked_where(False, x)

In [54]:y
masked_array(data = [1 2],
       mask = False,

In [55]:y[1]
IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last)
