New submission from mirabilos:


splitting off issue18061 by request of pitrou:

FPU precision issue: MC68881 FPU, similar to Intel 80387, uses 80-bit precision internally. We do not want to change it to 64-bit because it’s not supported in all environments. Can probably be reproduced on i386 (with disabled SSE); fixing this in general would allow keeping the FPUCW on i387 unchanged too.

See issue18061 for details.
