Which operating system is this?

It occurred to me that if your system is using the header files from the libpcc library, then there may be incompatibilities which could cause problems.

I will write a test program where we can verify that the headers are correct.

concerning floating point:
The very good diagnostic program paranoia.c ( reveales:
"Sticky bit used incorrectly or not at all."
Maybe this is the cause of the floating point issues?

output from paranoia:

Checking rounding on multiply, divide and add/subtract.
* is neither chopped nor correctly rounded.
/ is neither chopped nor correctly rounded.
Addition/Subtraction neither rounds nor chops.
Sticky bit used incorrectly or not at all.
FLAW: lack(s) of guard digits or failure(s) to correctly round or chop
(noted above) count as one flaw in the final tally below.

(note: on my linux, <stdlib.h> is broken,
as it does not include the necessary <inttypes.h>
so I have to include it explicit to compile paranoia)
