Nothing special, it's a win32 app which runs Python scripts with

No luck, unfortunately. My application makes use of DirectX (which I know
uses single-precision, but obviously I can't check its source, and I doubt
there's a bug there), and ODE (a dynamics library.. but no FPU control
functions used that I can find).
I tried putting _control87(_PC_64, _MCW_PC) before Py_Initialize and
PyRun_SimpleString (and restoring it afterwards); which makes everything
work as expected. This is obviously not a fantastic solution, but it does
show that you're right about the cause of the problem.
I might play around with moving my _control87 around the code a bit to try
and find the cause, unless someone already knows of a DirectX issue (using
Thanks heaps for your help,
