[Numpy-discussion] String array equality test does not broadcast

I am converting some numarray code to numpy and I noticed this behavior:

 >>> from numpy import *
 >>> sta=array(['abc', 'def', 'ghi'])
 >>> stb=array(['abc', 'jkl', 'ghi'])
 >>> sta==stb

I expected the same as this:
 >>> a1=array([1,2,3])
 >>> a2=array([1,4,3])
 >>> a1==a2
array([True, False, True], dtype=bool)

I am trying to figure out how to fix this now...
