#1856: Shift operator cycles for int32 and int64
 Reporter:  klasj       |       Owner:  somebody   
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new        
 Priority:  normal      |   Milestone:  Unscheduled
Component:  numpy.core  |     Version:  1.6.0      
 Keywords:  shift       |  
 The bitshift operations, both right and left cycles when they are shifted
 more bits than
 the length of the datatype. This happens for both int32 and int64 but not
 for int16,
 unsigned integers works as expected. In the example below version 1.6.1 is
 used but
 this is also present in at least 1.5.0.

 In [1]: import numpy as np

 In [2]: np.right_shift(np.int32(8),32)

 Out[2]: 8

 In [3]: np.right_shift(np.int64(8),64)

 Out[3]: 8

 In [4]: np.right_shift(np.int16(8),16)

 Out[4]: 0

 In [5]: np.left_shift(np.int32(8),32)

 Out[5]: 8

 In [6]: np.left_shift(np.int64(8),64)

 Out[6]: 8

 In [7]: np.left_shift(np.int16(8),16)

 Out[7]: 524288

 In [8]: np.version.full_version

 Out[8]: '1.6.1.dev-08953ea'
