#1873: Recarrays do not work with numpy.lib.stride_tricks.as_strided

 It seems that as_strided does not work as it should for recarrays. I think
 the issue is that the named fields of a recarray do not survive being run
 through as_strided. For example, the second print statement below is not
 able to output the array using numpy 1.6:

 import numpy
 import numpy.lib.stride_tricks

 t = numpy.dtype({'names': ['a', 'b'], 'formats': [numpy.float64,
 numpy.float64]}, align = True)

 a = numpy.zeros(10, dtype = t)
 print a
 print numpy.lib.stride_tricks.as_strided(a)

 I had a look at stride_tricks.py, but I am not familiar enough with
 __array_interface__ to suggest a fix. I would be grateful if someone else
 is able to resolve this.
