CVS update and give it a go.  Sorry, I couldn't get to it earlier, I've 
been busy and out of town.

The problem was that I had changed move_float in icode.c to deal with 
constants like move_int/move_ref/etc, unfortunately, I didn't realize at 
the time that all the constants were stored as doubles in a union.  
In other words, it was writing a double into the union and reading out a 
float, which isn't going to work.  Alas, none of the test cases caught 
this so it slipped through, sigh.
