 if dtype of arrays are string, such as '|S10', np.array_equal does not
 This function is implemented as follows:
 numpy/core/numeric.py, line 1966
 return bool(logical_and.reduce(equal(a1,a2).ravel()))

 However, np.equal is not implemented for strings. This issue can be
 avoided by replacing this line by
 return bool(logical_and.reduce((a1 == a2).ravel()))

 The same issue occurs in array_equiv at line 2008.
