I think that may be a bug or at least a misfeature. The standard is
somewhat vauge on a lot of issues dealing with floating point since
it is such a tricky subject and depends a lot on the environment. The
various rounding funcitons are particularly ugly IMHO. I added varients
of them that preserved the floating point type and properly implemented
IEEE behavior for jhc.
