I see those too. Tracking them is too much effort indeed. I followed the route already suggested by Marcin: break -ffast-math in finer options and find the one breaking our code. After a round-trip through Clang source code (I wish they had a proper documentation of *all* their command-line options as it exists for gcc), I came with a fix which keeps all useful optimisations enabled while the 3 failing tests do now pass.

Gonna commit shortly.

Best wishes,
