Rather, I meant that they don't pickle correctly. They use ndarray's
pickling, which will copy the data, and then reconstruct an ndarray on
the other side and just change the type to memmap without actually
memory-mapping the file. Thus you have a __del__ method referring to
attributes that haven't been set up.
