[Numpy-discussion] problem w 32bit binomial?

In case this hasn't been solved in more recent numpy...

I've tried the following lines on two installations of numpy 1.3 with python 2.6

 numpy.random.binomial(n=numpy.asarray([2,3,4], dtype='int64'),
p=numpy.asarray([.1, .2, .3], dtype='float64'))

A 64bit computer gives an output of array length 3.
A 32bit computer gives an error:

    TypeError: array cannot be safely cast to required type

If I change the int64 cast to an int32 cast then it works on both machines.
