That comes from numpy.ma. 
On the SVN, we got rid of a line in ma.core that forced the warnings to be silent module-wise. Instead, silencing the warnings is done inside each ma function. The issue shows up when you apply a np function on a masked_array: the warnings pop up because there's nothing to silence them, but everything should run smoothly.
Should, because I'm pretty sure there's a catch somewhere. I'll have to go and check an alternative approach using your __array_prepare__.
So yes, everything's fine (albeit noisy)
