What I noticed is the same in 3.1 and current cvs.
Also the assemblers on the older targets usually are buggy.
They need to be tested for their ability to handle
special values, denormals, and so on. Same goes for the
floating point hardware or software. Testing really is very
important for the floating point features. You can't just assume
that any of it works the way it is supposed to.
