[pypy-dev] math.log0 / interactive shell

Just a funny observation:

in interpreted PyPy,

    math.log10(1L << 10000)

works just fine.
In compiled PyPy, I get an overflow error.

Can this be related to some Exception problems?

Other problem:

When the compiled pypy shell starts, and any exception
occours, it takes about 10 minutes(!) until you get
the exception.
After that, it is as low or fast as other command prompts.

This was one reason why I looked into geninterp and gateway,
becasue I expected that something would be compiled late,
but I didn't find it. Which doesn't mean anything :-)
