There were two incorrect tests in float_pow_testcases.patch:

+            self.assertEqualAndEqualSign(pow_op(-INF, -0.5), -0.0)
+            self.assertEqualAndEqualSign(pow_op(-INF, -2.0), -0.0)

these should both have had 0.0 in place of -0.0.  Here are corrected and 
slightly expanded tests;  I've also fixed an incorrect doctest (0**nan 
should be nan, not 0) in Lib/test/ieee754.txt.
