I thought I used sqrtl there rather cunningly there: Now it just does 
calloc(8, BIG/8+1), but then what it did was ~calloc(√BIG, √BIG). My 
reasoning was: If BIG/8 was judged to be too long by the implementation 
(like yours), the former would fails by default, whereas in the latter 
case, it still only fails if the implementation mishandles products of 
the multiplication. I'm aware of the problem of dependencies though - 
that's why I'm documenting them.
