[SciPy-user] mixing scipy and Numeric

again I've got problems with old code that relies on Numeric when imported in 
some other program that uses scipy_core.
Numeric.log10 has problems with a type called
<type 'float64_arrtype'>.
A ValueError is raised when passing a variable of that type. The strange thing 
is that that variable has been created by pure Numeric code.
Where does that type belong to? scipy or Numeric or plain python? What does the 
suffix _arrtype suggest since it seems to be an ordinary float?

Regards, Christian
