The problem was that infix:<!=> hung with Complex numbers, because it
was defined for each numeric type, but the Complex candidate was
missing. Thus the most general candidate called .Numeric on its
arguments, re-dispatched, and looped infinitely.
Fixed in 2012.03-3-g4a247b1, and tested in S32-num/complex.t.
This also fixes the sequence 1, 2i, -4 ... 256.
