    Rino-
     I'm no mathematician, and won't even play one on TV.
    
     Obvious first thought is whether you are 
    seeing rounding errors or other math errors caused by the way your 
    programming language is doing the math? I remember hearing about 
    single/vs/double precision integer math and other limits and problems from 
    long ago, I suspect those problems still exist to some extent in all 
    programming languages or operating systems. At least, that's a first area to 
    eliminate.
