haypo: thanks for stating the issue.

ISTM that this classifies as an "obscure" bug: you have to use memoryviews, and you need to compare them for equality, and the comparison needs to be "non-trivial", where "trivial" is defined 
by "both are 1D byte arrays".

While this is a bug, I think it still can be fixed in a bug fix 
release of 3.3, so un-blocking.

I also think that as a first step, a specification needs to be
drafted defining when exactly a memory view should compare equal
with some other object. I can easily provide a specification that
makes the current implementation "correct".
