Hi David,

I mentioned this on the list a while ago but forgot to open a ticket:


Notice the crossreference link to nonzero() is wrong; it sends you to  
the C API when it should send you to the Python function in the same  
subpackage. I'm not sure how to debug this, or if there's a systematic  
way to find other instances where this is happening and fix them.
