#955: [debian #505999] memory leak in exponentiation
 Reporter:  stefan       |        Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect       |       Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal       |    Milestone:  1.1.2   
Component:  numpy.core   |      Version:  none    
 Severity:  normal       |   Resolution:          
 Keywords:  memory leak  |  
Comment (by sabik):

 stefan, the point with the exception is that 0.0**int32(-3.5) should
 behave the same way as 0.0**int64(-3.5); either they should both raise
 exceptions, or they should both return inf.

 With 0.1, that's the case: 0.1**int32(-3.5) == 0.1**int64(-3.5)

 With 0.0, the behaviour is different: 0.0**int32(-3.5) raises an exception
 while 0.0**int64(-3.5) returns inf.

 (I'm not sure whether exception or inf is the correct answer, but it
 should be the same for both.)
