```When I export to ascii I am losing precision and it getting consistency... I will try a flat dump.  More to come.  TY

Can you give an example matrix? I'm not a numerical linear algebra
expert, but I suspect that if your matrix is singular (or nearly so,
in floating point) then any inverse given will look pretty wonky. Huge
determinant, eigenvalues, operator norm, etc..
