It appears that the format function produces seemingly incorrect output for
+Infinity in fixed and exponential output format; it outputs "0.\0" (i.e.,
(string #\0 #\. #\nul)) for a positive infinity created by evaluating (/ 1.0
0.0).  I'm not clear what
the right output should be, I guess that's under debate.

I examined the problem on three Linux systems (Opteron, Pentium III, Pentium
4) and guile versions 1.6.4 and 1.6.7.  One of those was a Red Hat package,
the others Debian.  I believe this behavior occurs in both the ice-9 and slib

The following illustrates the problem:

guile> (version)
guile> (use-modules (ice-9 format))
guile> (/ 1.0 0.0)
guile> (format #t "~s~%" (/ 1.0 0.0))
guile> (format #t "~F~%" (/ 1.0 0.0))
