Some weird floating point errors.  compiled with -mieee, which is
required on debian alpha, but the following persists:

In gdb:

Breakpoint 3, make_shortfloat (f=Erroneous arithmetic operation.
) at number.c:148
148     {

The code:

make_shortfloat(double f)
        object x;

        if (f == (shortfloat)0.0)
        x = alloc_object(t_shortfloat);
        sf(x) = (shortfloat)f;

The call:

1395                          make_shortfloat(smallest_float));

can't a float be cast to a double in a function call?  Do you know of
a fix?

Take care,
