I agree, we might scale down the result if it's too big, before the
return. We could figure this out at the EM registration point, so a
proper shift might be applied for such platform. It might enable both
32bit and 64bit platforms to avoid the rounding error. Let me experiment
with some code to check all the cases.
Thank you for the comments!
