Good point, so we need a better solution that fixes all cases
>> I'll file a ticket.
>> Incidentally, if tanh(z) is simply programmed as
>> (1.0 - exp(-2.0*z)) / (1.0 + exp(-2.0*z))
>This will overflow as z -> -\infty. The solution is probably to use a

>this in case the above still misses something.
