Original ticket on 2010-02-09 by trac user schaefer0, assigned to unknown.

I install numpy (1.4.0) in the day, every day. - I log out in the evening, every evening, and by next morning numpy's core directory has been deleted. So I get clever and chmod on core to write protect it. No go. Still deleted. Arggghhh!

This is certainly not a problem in numpy.

I suspect that your admin has a buggy script which removes core files, or something to that effect. You should contact him about that problem.

@charris Bryan Van de Ven + charris BUG: Fix ticket #1990.
When an array is created from a sequence of numeric (boolean, int, float,
complex) and string (bytes, str, unicode) values, the resulting array type
is string, but only the string values were being used to choose the string
length, leading to truncation of data.
