I compile the simple expression (Version 2.2.2 on mac PPC 6100/60):

f = Compile[ {{x, _Real}}, x/10^8 ]

Evaluating it:

f[1.0]    ->    "CompiledFunction::cfn: Numerical error encountered at
instruction 6; proceeding with uncompiled evaluation."

If I replace 10^8 by 10^7 it works.
If I replace 10^8 by 100000000 it works.
If I define the function as 1.0/x and evaluate it at 10^8 it works.

I assume it's a bug, or have I missed something ?
