The other tests I posted indicate everything else is working... For example,
np.sum(fp) runs over the full set of 1e10 doubes and seems to work fine.
Also, while my first thought was about 2^32, Chuck Harris's reply kinda put
that to bed. Where 1410065408.0 comes from may involve e or PI (at least
thats how we reverse engineered answers when I was in college :-)
