Building C-evo on the Open Build Service, sometimes gives a weird error...

[  124s] [302/432] *installing fp-compiler*-3.2.0-3.2.0+dfsg-12
[  125s] An unhandled exception occurred at $0000000000470960:
[  125s] EInvalidOp: *Invalid floating point operation*
[  125s]   $0000000000470960
[  125s]   $0000000000472FC0

The problem is intermittent, sometime the aarch64 build succeeds. Builds for Bullseye OK on all other architectures.

Floating Point error on an install seems bizarre to me.

Anyone have any ideas on this?  Is it worth raising a bug report?

On the basis of a very low sample, this problem seems occur around 50% of the time.
