Actually, it's even more interesting than that:  Mzscheme
(command-line) produces that result, but DrScheme (GUI)
produces (graphically, with a properly horizontal vinculum)
2 225179981368525/1125899906842624.  Even more amusingly, that
(above) is how the graphical result was translated to ascii by
cut-and-paste operation.  Neat!  (Seems like an awful lot of effort to go to
to avoid frightening the kiddies...)
