Sine and Cosine producing wrong outputs

Cc: Distribution/OS:
Bug Status: New


For values ranging from 181 to 185 (in degrees) Sine gives positive values instead of negative values same thing happens for cosine in range of 91 to 95 degrees . This error is also persistent in radian mode!

Confirmed. Root cause is sign of result not displayed when result is long. Proof:

sin(179) = 0.0174524...                    <-- correct
sin(181) = 0.0174524...                    <-- should be negative
sin(181)+sin(179) = nearly zero            <-- correct
sin(181)-negate(sin(179)) = nearly zero    <-- correct

Perhaps solved by pending pull requests:
