Thanks Alan & Chris,

My apologies. I was trying ones(), zeros() and empty() in ipython 0.7.2 
with the -pylab option and getting the wrong functions. On my system, 
ipython -pylab imports the namespace of the oldnumeric wrapper versions 
of ones(), zeros() and empty() and I had assumed these were the core 
numpy versions. Maybe this has been changed in ipython 0.7.3.

Gary R.
