New submission from Florent Xicluna <laxyf at yahoo.fr>:

This test do not test "true division" contrary to what is claimed.

    for zero in ["huge / 0", "huge / 0L", "mhuge / 0", "mhuge / 0L"]:
        self.assertRaises(ZeroDivisionError, eval, zero, namespace)

Because it uses the module "unittest" to eval the expression.
And __future__.division is not active in unittest module.

Other tests were OK.
