It's an error to set the two values the same, because you get a divide
by zero case. (Which probably means that the whole chunk of code wants
a revisit to ensure that it really is doing what you think it is

The reason that FreeBSD then gives you an FPE is because their
implementation of double integer division uses FP routines.

(this has been mentioned in the past on the squid-users list)
