Thanks Derek. That would be greatly appreciated! Based on the 
follow-up messages in this thread, it looks like (hopefully) there will 
not be too much additional work in implementing it. For now I'll just 
use the temporary fix, a .reshape(-1), on any recfromtxt's that 
might read in a single row of data..

Kind regards,
