Sure enough ;) Looks like the mantissa need to be checked for .5.

In [22]: def nextpow2(x): m, e = np.frexp(np.abs(x)); return e - (m == .5)
....:

In [23]: nextpow2(.5)
Out[23]: -1

In [24]: nextpow2(.25)
Out[24]: -2

In [25]: nextpow2(1)
Out[25]: 0

In [26]: nextpow2(2)
Out[26]: 1

Which brings up the question: is nextpow2(.5) 0 or -1?
