Hi,

I don't know whether it is a real bug, but...

(%i301) radcan(x^0.000000001/x^0.00000001);

`rat' replaced -9.0E-9 by -1/111111111 = -9.000000008999999E-9
Exponent out of range
 -- an error.  Entering the Maxima Debugger dbm
Enter `:h' for help
(dbm:1)


Notice that there are 8 zeros and 7 zeros respectively. You can get the
error message with more zeros.

And this error only occurs for version 5.13.0 (as I tested), for versions
5.10.0, 5.9.2, no such error.
