TP's math functions automatically return REAL with $N- and EXTENDED
with $N+ (copro support). There is no reason to use the obsolete data
type REAL. SINGLE/DOUBLE/EXTENDED are supported since TP 4.0 and they
work as designed. If there is an error then it is a programming error
and not a TP error. It is not a sound strategy to try to cure symptoms
instead of curing the disease.
