5.13.0 works better, but wxmaxima seems to have problems with it, probably
because of the output from the load command as you hypothesize. Wxmaxima
seems not to return after the load command.
The command line version works ok though.
What is needed is a version of dgeev that runs with bigfloats, and then we
have arbitrary precision polynomial rootfinding as one consequence. :)
