This should work without generating an exception.  If it doesn't, I
would guess that you are using Octave on a DEC Alpha running OSF/1 or
Digital Unix.  The problem is that gcc 2.7.x doesn't fully support
IEEE floating point operations on the Alpha.  This is supposed to be
fixed in gcc 2.8.x, but I don't know when that will be released.
