Disposition: Creation of a too-small exponent was not being properly checked -- I caused ANTILOG to exit via \MAKEFLOAT, availing itself of its checking.  JonL 5/1/84 20':19':00'
Had to go into ANTILOG again, due to botching the aforementioned fix and causing gross accuracy lossage.   JonL  5/17/84   20':35':00'
