#1608: numpy.sort on x.flat modifies x
 Reporter:  carlscheffler  |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect         |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal         |   Milestone:  1.5.1   
Component:  numpy.core     |     Version:  1.3.0   
 Keywords:  sort, flat     |  

Comment(by charris):

 I suspect this is related to x.flat being an iterator but I'm not sure
 how. There are some other odd effects that can be obtained. But in any
 case, the usual array constructor can break down with iterators. We should
 either raise an error here or detect the iterator. Note that a lot of the
 functions in fromnumeric use the same construction.
