Comment(by josefpktd):

 This is a known problem, see also ticket:793 for the problem with the
 support and ticket:938 for missing test.

 Seeing it as a broadcast issue is new to me, and it might be possible to
 make additional cases work.

 However, overall I think that the case where the support is set in
 _argcheck is not so easy and requires full tests, because many (generic)
 methods rely on the definition of the support. (It took me a long time to
 figure out where the weird statefullness in the distributions is coming
 from - _argcheck.)

 It seems to me to make this work across the board and generically will be
 quite a bit of work. It never was important enough to me to go through
 this, but I would be glad to review any patches.
