Eli Friedman tells me that the specs for ConstantFP have changed.  In the
release notes it now tells us that the first argument has been dropped

Given the change of spec, there isn't much point in doing your tests; but
removing the first argument from the offending call works wonders. 
Someone with write access should correct the tutorial!
