I agree with your analysis: I am not overly shocked that on a 32 bit
architecture creating an array of 2^31 elements fails, while on a
64 bit architecture the same test passes. Still, how about sending
a bug report? Can anything be seen from the Debian package? If it is
a consistent 32 bit failure, it had better be repaired upstream.

For the Fortran bindings, I am hesitant as well. I think it is bad style
to disable a test just because it fails ;-)  Maybe someone with experience
in numpy can speak up.
