[Ecls-list] Rounding bug in float

With ecl 8.12.0 on Linux, I get

(float (/ (1- (ash 1 100)) (ash 1 100)) 1d0) -> .999999...99d0

I think the answer should be 1d0 since the difference between 1 and the
rational above is far less than double-float-negative-epsilon.  Both
clisp and cmucl produce 1d0.
