Comment (by charris):

 The function didn't change but the configuration changes for detecting
 functions probably caused the numpy version to be used. What happens if
 you add

 #define HAVE_ATANH

 before the function? In any case we need to track down the problem. The
 numpy version is more accurate for small values of x than the Mathworks
 version, but I suspect log1p might be broken for inf values. What does
 log1p(inf) do?
