(OVERFLOW T) followed by (IPLUS MAX.FIXP 1) does not cause an error, because the Dorado is not punting out to \SLOWIPLUS2, which is where the error is (should be) generated.  The Dolphin does the right thing.'

While the DLion apparently *does* punt out on the overflow cases, the Dorado doesn''t -- it assumes OVERFLOW(0). This is the fault of the large-number dorado microcode I wrote a while back -- I just didn''t check for overflow.'
This has to get fixed before we can support BIGNUMs, and OVERFLOW(T). I''ve been running on my DLion with OVERFLOW(T) set for a while now and have not discovered any serious problems.'

Ah so! you confess to being the "culprit" (source of bug) ?  This is AR 199, which as you can imagine, has been around for quite a while.  Will be fixed in the upcoming round of Dorado ucode maintenance.'
