New submission from Petr <bubersson at gmail.com>:

Hi, I've just tried some math functions in python3.0, but there's an 
wrong calculation (see the example). sin(pi/4) should be same as 
(2^.5)/2, but the result is different in last two digits. I don't know 
if it's an expected behaviour and this is my first posted issue. 

Python 3.0rc1 (r30rc1:66507, Sep 18 2008, 14:47:08) [MSC v.1500 32 bit 
>>> from math import *
>>> sin(pi/4)==(2**0.5)/2
