Oops!  I mixed up `sin` and `cos` in that comment.  If it's argument reduction that's broken, then for x near pi/2 cos(x) will be evaluated as -sin(x - pi/2), which is approximately -(x - pi/2), and so error in argument reduction (the "x - pi/2" part) will show up directly in the cos() result.  So to confirm or refute that, you could replace `tan` by `cos` in the Python program I posted.
