It's possible to trigger it with any element type, as long as the use
manages to construct a 1-D array. E.g. with contrib/_int.sql loaded,
array substraction is possible. Now:
postgres=# select ARRAY::int4 - ARRAY::int4;
postgres=# select array_ndims(ARRAY::int4 - ARRAY::int4);
Binary send and recv of the value at hand would change it into a 0-D vector.

Judging from the fact that it also happens with int4 arrays, this seems
like the wrong place.
