from numpy import *
import cPickle

a = zeros((300000, 1000)) 
f = open("test.pkl", "w") 
cPickle.dump(a, f)

------
SystemError: Traceback (most recent call last)

/home/kddcup/code/matt/svd-projection/take5/<ipython console> in <module>()

SystemError?: error return without exception set

Or using the .dump function:

a.dump("test.pkl")

SystemError? Traceback (most recent call last)

/home/kddcup/code/matt/svd-projection/take5/<ipython console> in <module>()

SystemError: NULL result without error in PyObject?_Call

I am not sure if this is a numpy or Pickle/cPickle glitch. In either case, even if this is a semi-known behavior, a more instructive error message would certainly help. I think the problem only happens for arrays larger than 2**(32-1) bytes but I would have to experiment more to be sure.
