        In system 32.2 microcode 674 on CADR-1
        In Input base 10.
        (setq first_num -1914869973288837242889404296875000.)
        (setq second_num 1235444629394531250.)
        (\  first_num second_num)

        gives -1, whereas
        (/ (abs first_num) (abs second_num))

        gives 0.

    Sorry, the slash should also be a backslash.
Are you sure of your facts?  When I try your numbers (editing them out
of this mail and reading them into a machine, to avoid typos) it returns 0.
Running the same microcode (674).
