I would like to stress the fact that imo this is maybe not ticket and not a bug.
The issue arises when calling a.max() or similar of empty arrays a, i.e., with:
>>> 0 in a.shape
Opposed to the .prod() of an empty array, such a .max() or .min()
cannot be defined, because the set is empty. So it's fully correct to
let such calls fail. Just the failure is a bit deep in numpy, and
only the traceback gives some hint what went wrong.
I posted something similar also on the matplotlib-users list, sorry
for cross-posting thus.
