BUG: core: result_type(0, np.timedelta64(4)) would seg. fault. #20106

merged 1 commit into from Oct 12, 2021

Backport of #20088.

Before this change, the line in convert_datatype.c

result = PyArray_CastDescrToDType(all_descriptors[0], common_dtype);

would trigger a seg. fault with a call such as

np.result_type(0, np.timedelta64(4))

The problem was that all_descriptors[0] was NULL, and it was
dereferenced in PyArray_CastDescrToDType.

The code in the loop that followed the above line avoided passing
NULL values in all_descriptors[i] to PyArray_CastDescrToDType by
checking that the corresponding input argument to result_type
was not a Python scalar. A different code path was taken in that
case. The seg. fault is fixed by applying that same check to the
first argument.

Closes gh-20077.
