I must've been hallucinating: this is on ppc64. I remembered it being
closer to 1e-1,
>>> dtype = np.complex64
>>> z = np.array([1e-5*(1+1j)], dtype=dtype)
>>> p = 9.999999999333333333e-6 + 1.000000000066666666e-5j
>>> d = np.absolute(1-np.arctanh(z)/p)
>>> d
array([ 2.75662915e-09], dtype=float32)
>>> np.finfo('complex64').eps
1.1920929e-07
>>> _ * 5
5.9604644775390625e-07
So I guess it is pretty small, and small enough to pass the revised
test condition you gave above.
