Replying to myself. I was too eager in accusing GCC: The mistake is
actually in the library for C99-enabled compilers. Now that I fixed it,
interval<double>(1u) returns [-4.29497e+09,1] on my computer. So rounded
conversions are now performed as they were expected (yet not intended)
to perform, but it also means that the bug will become visible with
other compilers than MSVC.
