Regression tests are a really good way to find bugs like this. I've done it quite a few times for Wine. Using git you can automate the process.

Unfortunately I doubt Toni has individual commit-level change history going that far back. But it still might be possible (for someone with lots of spare time) to do a kind of manual regression test; apply half the FPU-related changes from 1.1.1 to 1.2, compile and see if that shows the problem. Of course manually applying half the changes would be tricky to say the least.

Toni: do you still have any 1.2 betas around? Maybe finding which beta first showed the problem could help narrow it down.
