Thanks for the tip. I noticed several times this was not working
(because of course, in the mean time, I forgot it...)
but I had totally overlooked the reasons (just imagining there was some
garbage collection magic vanishing my arrays !!)

I find the syntax "np.empty(shape).fill(A)" being indeed a good
alternative to the burden of creating a new numpy.fill (or numpy.filled
?) function.
