Right, it indeed should not. Though the output triangle in general
represents the (more or less) right difference, it is apparently not
precise enough for your purposes. If you use ttmath, you will get the
(more) correct output. I will see if it can be improved for double as well.

It is unclear to me which is the other error.

That is not the intention.
