Actually, this was a mistake.  Sorry.

Not necessarily: non-strict FP can be exactly the same as strict FP at
the implementor's discretion.  In this case the question is, are the
values GCJ returns incorrect?  If so, we have a bug in GCJ or in the
FPU itself.

I know I should do this calculation by hand to make sure, but...
