Martin v. Löwis added the comment:

Tom: you are misinterpreting the docs. It says (paraphrased) that the result of 
x//y equals floor(x mathematically-divided-by y), which is different from 
floor(x/y). Your computer is not capable of performing the 
mathematically-divided-by operation; you have to compute it on paper.
