[Numpy-discussion] A bug in creating array of long int.

I got the following strange value when converting a long integer into
numarray. I spent some time in tracking it down in my program.
Is it a bug or an expected one? Thanks.

>>> array([True])
array([1], type=Bool)
>>> array([1])
>>> array([1L]) # How about preserving long int type?
>>> array([10000000000000000L])
array([1874919424])  # Oops. The value is changed without any notice.
