I would file a bug report on numpy issue tracker.  The bug is on their
end for trying to parse error messages.  However, given that there's
no other option in this case, and that the workaround should be pretty
easy (I doubt any numbers but one are typed out, and it should be no
problem to special-case that), it should be fixed there.
