#734: McLachlan triggers arithmetic exception (but results are fine)
 Reporter:  wolfgang.kastaun@…           |        Type:  defect   
   Status:  new                          |    Priority:  minor    
Milestone:                               |   Component:  Other    
  Version:                               |    Keywords:  McLachlan
 If I enable floating point exceptions for debugging purposes, they are
 triggered by McLachlan in the routine
 The guilty line is


 the involved values are
 (gdb) p rL
 $1 = 0
 (gdb) p SpatialBetaDriverRadius
 $2 = 1000000000000

 This only happens once per grid, apparently at the origin.

 The results look fine otherwise, no NaNs or INFs propagated, but this is
 annoying when debugging other code, trying to find the first time a NaN is

 ET version is the Maxwell release.
