thanks a lot for your hint, it works fine.

Not sure if i understand this correctly, if i derive from other
classes (like wxpython widgets) i always call the bases __init__ .

>>  Though i explicitly
>> call __init__() for array.

Is there a way to find out what i need to call?  I haven't found much in
the documentation.  From writing C extensions i knew about the "new" entry
in the PyTypeObject struct but it seems there's more behind it.
In i did not find much, is there an URL where i can read 

Best regards,
