Hi Anakim,

The difference is really in the code path that gets taken: in the first
case, you go through `a.__getitem__(np.array([1,6,5])`, in the second
through `a.__setitem__(...)`. The increments would not work if you added an
extra indexing to it, as in:
a[np.array([1,6,5])][:] += 1

​(which would do `a.__getitem__(...).__setitem__(slice(None))`)

Hope this clarifies it,
