Description Uwe Strempel 2005-09-22 15:44:03 UTC
	I've written an macro for log2 calculation to calculate the exponent of one value.
	Than I cast this value to from double to int.
	The 2 values double and int differs. 
	log2(8) should be 3 but after casting to int its 2.
	This bug could be reproduced on 2 different linux distributions (Debian GNU/Linux and Fedora Core 2) with different compiler versions.

	For workaround I implemented a function for log2.

This is really not a bug.

This is a dup of 323.
