platform-dependent was my first thought.

here its
max factor(170) = 7.257415615307994e+306

with a ceiling around 1.8e308+INF

pov3.5 does not crash


TO andrel:
last time I got vc compiler error on mem damage (tried to free wrong mem)
I was damaged. I cant see how this is safe for anyone to just test the limits by
instructing the impossible.

you can get a good mem checker that will make a boot disc and check mem. thats
how I confirmed source or errors that followed. Luckily only memory was
damaged.
