Well, we should at least add a regression test for this divide thing
since obviously people assumed it was working when it wasn't.

However, would it be possible to add a test_sigfpe() to regress.c that
simply tries to do 1/0. There is appears to be no regression test that
generates a floating-point exception which appears to be a serious
omission. There are any number of ways to force one: ln(0) for example
(hmm, looks like we protect against that). I suppose one floating point
and one integer example should suffice.

Are there any other signals we should be watching for?
