Glynn, so you are suggesting that more than in the float number 
approximations, the problem is in why the number passed to the aacos is 
so close to 1.
Well, then my question is, which are the cases where the two point 
equidistant projection could not behave well? Is it a problem of the two 
point equidistant definition or a problem of the way it is implemented 
in proj lib?

I can provide a long set of cases where the conversion from tpeqd to 
longlat fails, I just need a bit of time to run some data processing.
