These are bugs that don't happen with the 64 bit version of Clozure--for the 32 bit, they have been with us for sometime. See, for
example http://www.math.utexas.edu/pipermail/maxima/2012/028436.html. Andrey Grozin reported these bugs to the Clozure list
(http://clozure.com/pipermail/openmcl-devel/2012-April/013491.html). I was unable to find to find out anything about the origin
of these bugs.
Also, both 32 & 64 bit Clozure uses the SSE2 instructions---this can be a problem for older hardware.
