Can't answer your direct question, but I have done expansions using very
high *order* Hermite or Laguerre polynomials with moderately large
arguments and found that I got much better accuracy if the arguments
were totally integer in character, e.g. f[1001/1000] was much more
accurate (at large orders) than f[1.001] -- presumably because the first
case expands the polynomial using purely integer arithmetic (?).
