I didn't really follow this (only saw it now). Just to add...
Numpy 1.7. does not have relaxed strides. However, in some cases 1.8.
strides checks are more strict (and consistent) when not compiled with
relaxed strides. So it is plausible that the tests simply run into one
of those cases, maybe it even just doesn't matter if a test is
unnecessarily skipped in 1.7...
