As already noted by several people, we all have the same problem under Version that you mention.  In addition, it seems to bomb for any root of J0
that is 3 or greater.

Just as an aside, I found a copy of Version 3.0.0 running under Windows that
calculates these without a problem.  The Mac version also seems to function
without any problems.

Just my additional 2 cents worth.
