That entry mainly concerns the sign of the extrapolated value when it
is close to zero.  It is not an actual bug as such, just the way the
QUADPACK extrapolation algorithm works.

The error for roundoff is normal if you push the integration too far.
The solution is to use a larger tolerance or break up the integral in
some way.  The reference in the manual gives more details.
