It looks like some code isn't handling the improved "long double" type very
well.... (With Mac OS X Tiger 10.4 and GCC 4, the "long double" type is
finally distinct and bigger than "double". The pre-Tiger warnings about not
using "long double" are obviously removed. But it looks like the "double"
version of "exp" is being used. Taking a quick look at a system "math.h"...
I'm not sure there is a "long double" overload of "exp", just "expl".)
