pari-stable denotes version 2.1.x, pari denotes version 2.2.x.
The latest stable version is 2.1.7.

I think I can reproduce this bug with all versions (2.1.3, 2.1.7,
2.2.11) by using the C program below:

#include <pari/pari.h>
#include <float.h>

int main(void)
  double g=DBL_MIN/2;
  GEN z;
  pariputsf("%g %Z\n",g,z);
