Asko's LNUM patch contains some known bugs that we should fix, any
help is welcome. Doug Rogers already sent me a patch to fix an error
with integer power of complex number but for the moment I didn't
commit it. I don't know if this is related to your problem, I will
need to look more closely.

I'm potentially interested in the numlua complex stuff but I would
like to understand how numlua manage complex numbers ? Are they
considered as native types ?
