I ran into one of those things.

take a look at:

#for (T, 0, 100, 0.1)
 #debug concat (str(T, 3, 16), "\n")

Around the 13th decimal place there starts to be some > N.0 behaviour which
throws off looking for the regular integer occurrences with mod (N, 1)

I'm curious why it's not in actual even steps of N.10000000000000000000.... out
to however many places POV-Ray numbers go.
