[SciPy-user] problem referencing single element arrays

Having a problem with numpy that has me stumped.

I have a large set of arrays. I want to set up cross reference lists of
elements within those arrays, with the lists just being pointers to the objects
(floating point numbers) stored in the arrays.

The problem is that some arrays have only a single element, so when I try to
store a[0] for a single element array, I get an error, "0-d arrays can't be
indexed". How do I get a pointer to the object stored and not the array for
single element arrays? 

Or maybe I don't want to be doing this?
