You need to be clearer about what you're trying to report.

If you're saying (/ 0) is not the same as (/ 1 0), then I see that's
the case.  My guess would be that's wrong, probably both ought to give
errors (on the basis there's no multiplicative inverse of an exact
zero).  This is the case in the cvs head, perhaps it should be made so
in the 1.6 series too.
