just to follow up -- not as an argument, but to add data --
this inaccurate printout happens with smaller numbers
(in the 2^50 range), and as noted by others, the internal
representation seems ok. Here's another example:

guile> 1000000000000007.0
guile> (odd? 1000000000000007.0)
guile> (even? 1000000000000007.0)

("It's an *inexact* integer, ferchrissake")
