Thanks for the report and the testcase.

Actually, the test for the input parameter should not shift it at all,
otherwise invalid input, for instance, 0xf0000000, would be treated as a
valid input of 0.  The fesetprec function had the same problem.  I fixed
that by explicitely only allowing the valid input range.

Thanks again,
