   Two people have written me saying this is a precision error that is

   Folks, precision errors happen at the ends of arrays, not the
   beginning.

   Also, I'm ADDING. Precision errors typically happen on division or
   multiplication. (Mostly just division).

   The only computational error one could expect on adding is overflow.

   Further replies may be posted to the newsgroup, which I am now
   monitoring.

what array are you talking about?  what is typical, besides ignorance?

please read up on numerical representations (grep for "ieee floating
point") to better understand your misunderstanding.
