Note that differences are allowed in reg-tests-3.Rout (it even says so in
the output you sent!).  The supplied version is right and yours is wrong
(the theoretical answer is 0/0, as I am sure you had checked).

You might like to investigate why your system is getting the wrong answers
for your own peace of mind, as many other `i686-linux-gnu' systems give
the correct answers.  This is not a new test, there being no change since
1.8.0 in either the test or the code it is testing.  So it is a fair
assumption that *all* the various Linux distros for which binary packages
are produced worked correctly -- and that is a large range of current and 
not-so-current systems.
