[Numpy-discussion] numpy slices limited to 32 bit values?

Today at Sage Days we tried slices on a few large arrays (no mmap) and found
that slicing breaks on arrays somewhere between 2.0e9 and 2.5e9 elements.
The failure mode is the same, no error thrown, basically nothing happens

This was on one of the big sage machines. I don't know the specific OS / CPU
but it was definitely 64 bit and lots of available memory etc.
