As for the division behaviour, that's completely standard (according to IEEE
rules), but easily changed, assuming you have fenv.h on your system: you
just need to change the floating point exception state of the program
hosting Lua, using fesetexcept flag. If you can't do this you're on your
own, and may have to change the Lua source (but that's easy).
