32 bit integer types cannot be used as index for synaptic variables #888

Using a 32 bit numpy integer type (i.e., np.int32) as an index for a synaptic variable fails. E.g. with:

G = NeuronGroup(10, '')
S = Synapses(G, G, 'w : 1')

Using normal integers works:

S.w[0] = 1

While the following does not:

S.w[np.int32(0)] = 1  #FAILS

This also means that while you can use numpy arrays (depends on your architecture/OS whether you have to explicitly specify the dtype for the bug to trigger):

S.w[np.arange(10, dtype=np.int32)] = 1

Using a single element out of that array fails

S.w[np.arange(10, dtype=np.int32)[0]] = 1  #FAILS
