No, the main issue is still under consideration.

There were two issues here:

(1) a clear bug, namely that the Py_SET_53BIT_PRECISION_* macros weren't being used for the dtoa calls when rounding, and

(2) a proposal to alter the way that the FPU settings are treated on Windows;  this is still open.

I'll change the type from behaviour, though.

type: behavior -> enhancement
