Strange division evaluation for dynamically allocated `cpp_bin_float`

Reported by: michel Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: Boost 1.64.0 Component: multiprecision
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


With this code

#include <iostream>
#include <boost/multiprecision/cpp_bin_float.hpp>

using namespace boost::multiprecision;
using Real = number<cpp_bin_float<10000, digit_base_10, std::allocator<void>>>;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    std::cout << 1 / Real(1.4) << std::endl;
    return 0;

assertion fails as

Assertion failed: 
    cpp_bin_float<Digits, DigitBase, Allocator, Exponent, MinE, MaxE>::bit_count - 1
function eval_divide, file boost/multiprecision/cpp_bin_float.hpp, line 1086.

or it prints 26699.6 when compiled with NDEBUG. If I change Real(1.4) to Real(1), the program does not terminate.

Tested on g++-5.4.
