Python's result looks fine to me, as does numpy's: they're both giving a valid inverse hyperbolic sine:

>>> from cmath import sinh
>>> sinh(1.3169578969248166-1.5707963267948966j)  
(1.0605752387249067e-16-1.9999999999999998j)
>>> sinh(-1.3169578969248164-1.5707963267948966j)
(-1.0605752387249064e-16-1.9999999999999993j)

Perhaps numpy is using different branch cuts?
