Re: 1>0 gives False


I see similar odd behavior in 5.2 for Microsoft Windows (June 20, 2005)

(1`1) > 0
False

(1`2) > 0
False

(1`3) > 0
True

Forcing Mathematica to use real numbers all around does not seem to help.

(1`2) > 0`
False

Switching to the N function does not help either.

N[1, 2] > 0
False
