package octave2.9
retitle 418158 poisscdf fails for large arguments due to the algorithm in D9LGIT
tags 418158 upstream wontfix

Francesco confirmed in a private mail that the only remaining problem is
indeed with the poisscdf call. He received a private mail by someone
suggesting that the problem is with the algorithm in D9LGIT.

I'm tagging this bug "wontfix", although "cantfix" probably describes
the situation better: the best solution would be to use a different
implementation for poisscdf(), if its arguments are large, but I don't
think we in Debian have the knowledge for this. 

Octave's upstream is likely to accept a patch for this, so feel
encouraged to submit one.
