One would need to bump the tolerance for 'F' by a factor of 5 to make 
the test pass.

I'm not sure I'm fully comfortable doing that without looking, as I'm
not sure whether it's supposed to be more accurate or not. It's single
precision ok, but the error is ~ 15000*eps; or 5*sqrt(eps).

Maybe it's nevertheless best to just bump the tolerance --- it's not
probable that this is due to a real bug anywhere in the codebase.


Another BTW: what's the platform, and which BLAS/LAPACK libraries
are used?
