The "seq" utility should use two 64-bit integers to represent the 10-base

Thanks for the hint!

As the saying goes:

Sometimes, people think 'I have a problem and I will solve it with floating 
point values' and then they have 1.99999999 problems.

Well, seq(1) is about floating numbers, so at least initially using them internally would seem correct, though reading your replies I now understand it's not :-)
