Re:  floor() and idiv
Well this one is interesting since in XPath 2 F&O spec
it is said that

Thus, the semantics " $a idiv $b " are equivalent to " ($a div $b)
cast as xs:integer " except for error situations.

A bug in the spec or in Saxon ?

  floor(1000000000000000000000000000000001 div
  1000000000000000000000000000000001 idiv 100000000000000000000000000000001,
 (1000000000000000000000000000000001 div
100000000000000000000000000000001) cast as xs:integer


10, 9, 10
