Below is a little demo program that produces what are, to me, 
unpredictable results.  This is a exercise in using C library 
functions.  The program was compiled under v3r7 using activation 
group *caller and binding directory qc2le.  

The first and second calls execute correctly. The third call returns 
a value that appears to be ln(ln(2)).  It's not an artifact of using 
2 for the function argument--it returns the same value for other 
numbers also.  The same code works fine if the function argument is 
initialized each time using the %float() function.

I'm sure there's something I'm missing here.  Any suggestions.
