The problem is not with the math coprocessor, but the software used by mathematica in computing range reduction. To reduce the range of 2^100 you need about 120 bits of Pi. If Mathematica is supposed to provide a seamless "mathematical" computational environment, it should not give wrong answers and allege that they have high Accuracy and Precision.
