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))
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).
