Really? Strange. Well, I can turn the patch around and fix the C++ front-end to follow the C front-end.

Yes, I submitted a patch about this a few months ago to fix this, but
unfortunately it was never approved (there was a discussion about it though
where I lerned the difference between 0.0/0.0 and 0.0/0).

it *should* warn here.

Could you point me to the discussion or give some hint to find it?
