#288: Wrong message error for 0-dim slicing
 Reporter:  faltet      |       Owner:  somebody   
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new        
 Priority:  lowest      |   Milestone:  1.0 Release
Component:  numpy.core  |     Version:  devel      
 Severity:  trivial     |    Keywords:             

 I think the next message is wrong:

 In [64]: c=numpy.array(1)
 In [65]: c[:]
 <type 'exceptions.ValueError'>            Traceback (most recent call

 /home/faltet/carabos/repositori/ceei/<ipython console> in <module>()

 <type 'exceptions.ValueError'>: cannot slice a scalar

 Instead, the message should be something like:

 <type 'exceptions.IndexError'>: cannot slice a 0-d array
