The reason for this behavior is that
the file 'scheme48-1.3/scheme/rts/floatnum.scm'
tries to compute the
exponent of a float value x by multiplying
by 1, 2, 4, 8, etc. until the
product is integral---which never happens
for x = +inf. This is initiated
by a call to ZERO? on +INF.0 in procedure
/* of 'flonum.scm' of the
SRFI's reference implementation.
