[Python-Dev] Debian/alpha test_math failures

test_math is currently failing on the Debian/alpha buildbots (trunk and
I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to figure out what's going wrong, and I'm
starting to run out of ideas, so I thought I'd ask the list for help to see
anyone has any useful suggestions.
Details of the failure: running the following code:
from math import log
ar = 9.88e-324
x = log(ar)
ValueError: math domain error
Somehow, it looks like errno is getting set to something nonzero in
math_1_from_whatever in mathmodule.c, but I really can't figure out
I've tried adding '-mieee' to the gcc compile flags, and I've added a bunch
of autoconf tests to verify that log(9.88e-324) succeeds, produces
roughly the right result, and doesn't set errno to anything nonzero.
All the autoconf tests that should pass do. So I can't find anything
wrong with the libm implementation of log.
test_math is fine on Tru64/alpha.
Does anyone have access to a Linux/alpha machine, and a few minutes
to figure out exactly what's failing? Or any suggestions about what might
be failing. I'm open to wild ideas at this point... :-)
