Note that the exact values of `1.7**i` don't matter here - some sloppiness in the `pow` results should not cause a test failure. The key point is that under fairly mild assumptions about IEEE 754 conformance, the subtractions `1.7**(i+1) - 1.7**i` are always performed exactly, thanks to Sterbenz's lemma.
