    My PPro manual says:

    #DE The signed result (quotient) is too large for the destination.

    Since your result will be MAXINT+1, Divide Error and the mapping to SIGFPE
    (arithmetic exception) seems appropriate. What would you prefer it do,
    wrap the result around to zero? What does SPARC do?
