Yes, I should add some utilities to print those for this kind of test.
But in this case, I know the problem: mingw gcc use 80 bits long
double but it uses the MS runtime which considers double and long
double to be the same (8 bytes).

I think the real fix is to force npy_longdouble to be double on mingw,
but I don't want to make that change now for 1.4.0.
