I've checked in a fix into the develop branch. I havn't yet seen the
results of the ublas tests but I'm hopeful that this problem will
disappear. For me it's not really an ublas problem but a serialization
library backwards compatibility problem.

The only problem now is that the fix breaks the test_array in the
serialization library due to some behavior of the build system which we
haven't been unable to pin down. Very annoying.

I'm curious as to why you replaced ublas with QVM. Why was one superior
to the other?
