Looking at the definition of "ones":
def ones(shape, typecode='l', savespace=0):
"""ones(shape, typecode=Int, savespace=0) returns an array of the given
dimensions which is initialized to all ones.
return zeros(shape, typecode, savespace)+array(1, typecode)
It looks like you could try a=zeros(shape)+initial_val instead.
Hm.. I might do some experimenting.
