0.739... is a fixpoint of the cos() function, so if
everything works well, the variable doesn't change
much. The "nan" result shows that the calculation
of the cos() failed. In this case it is due to an
overflow of the i387 FP stack.

No output is good output - the function iterates
as it should.

Hmm - this could mean that qemu's i387 model does not
signal the stack overflow. That's likely a bug.
