Hi Juan, happen to be on old amd x86_64 Linux box right now.

If I set a gdb breakpoint at ffiTestDoubles9 and step through it, I end 
up in

		result2 = floatObjectOf(floatRet1);

At this point
   floatRet1 = 0x4046800000000000
after step
   result2 = 0x846800000000004

which looks right to me.

Continuing, the result is Smalltalk is SmallInteger 0.0 !

Result seems to get lost somewhere.

I have my RasPi unplugged at the moment..  Have to get back w result
