Description Benoit Steiner 2014-02-11 19:49:50 UTC
The test appears to succeed most of the time. Unfortunately it fails for seed 1392142979.

Here's what I get when running on linux in gcc with the latest Eigen codebase:

(gdb) run s1392142979

I initially though about a false negative, but it was not. Fixed:
