Sorry,  it really sounds tricky.. I don't get it yet =(.. in that
case, we should have a float comparison, don't we? Thus, the '<'
expression would return 0, the 'if' test would fail and the function
would return 0, which should be the right result for n = 2.0^63. Is
that wrong? I must be missing something.

BTW, these tests are publicly available for Lua 5.3?
