Different behavior of same code in Linux and Windows

Hi Eike,

I've got it! You were right (as always). The problem was exactly there:

When fRemainder is weak, for instance due to floating point representation
0.2 gives 0.2000...0018 in double precision and fRemainder may tend to about
1e-15, nPartialDenom cannot represent its reciprocal in 32 bits precision.
That's why 64 bits precision is required.

Correct commit is on the way. :-)

Best regards,

Laurent BP
