In the paper there was something about this. Certain instances need
double the precision in order to have the iteration stabilise.

The link is in the bugreport 127 and it is fascinating. Covers atan,
hyperbolic, linear interpolation, hypotenuse calculation and even
spherical to polar coordinates.  Also inverses can be done because it
is an iterative algorithm.
