Clearly we need a 1000-page Isabelle/HOL-style machine-checked formal proof, rather than a ten-page TeX proof.  Any takers?

All of the above bugs seem to have been introduced with the new 'bigcomp' code that arrived on March 16, 2009, just a couple of weeks before I downloaded the version that got adapted for Python;  in retrospect, I probably should have used the NO_STRTOD_BIGCOMP #define to bypass the new code.
