#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 stefan):

 Note to self: This is due to np.int32 being derived from the Python int
 type.  On 64-bit systems, the results are the opposite way around:

 In [4]: 0.0**np.int32(-3.5)
 Out[4]: inf

 In [5]: 0.0**np.int64(-3.5)
 <type 'exceptions.ZeroDivisionError'>: 0.0 cannot be raised to a negative
