Matrix causing the problem

For the attached matrix, ColPivHouseholderQR yields a decomposition error 

(A*P - Q*R).norm()

of 4.28e-11 (using Scalar = double), i.e. it loses 5 orders of magnitude. 

For comparison, non-pivoting HouseholderQR achieves a decomposition error of 1.98e-16, and also the pivoting QR implementation of Matlab achieves a decomposition error of 4.11e-16.
