I just ran the same script again with Numeric, and was not able to reproduce 
the problem.

The following gives me the same error:

import pickle
import scipy
import Numeric

a = scipy.arange(10)
b = pickle.load(file('temp.p'))
c = Numeric.array(b)

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "pickletest.py", line 8, in ?
    c = Numeric.array(b)
ValueError: cannot handle misaligned or not writeable arrays.

I have an up-to-date scipy, (every day I update svn, rm -Rf build, rm -R 
site-packages/scipy, and install from scratch) 
In [4]: scipy.base.__version__
Out[4]: ''

In [5]: scipy.__scipy_version__
Out[5]: '0.4.2_1466'
