The docstring should say "ustr.encode" instead of "ustr.decode".
The documentation page is correct.

>>> print(array.array.fromunicode.__doc__)
fromunicode(ustr)

Extends this array with data from the unicode string ustr.
The array must be a unicode type array; otherwise a ValueError
is raised.  Use array.frombytes(ustr.decode(...)) to
append Unicode data to an array of some other type.
