Is it possible your 34S is in one of the slow clock states?

Just to be sure I set it to FAST mode. But I do not think this is the problem - the point is that the iteration in user code runs so much faster than the XROM routine.

Maybe there's a problem with the initial guess. Could you provide the first guesses for df=20 and p = 1E-10, 0,05, 0,95 and 0,99999? Or is there a way to single-step through the routine so that I can do this myself? The initial guess should be within approx. ±10% of the final result.

Back then we also discussed a modification of the Newton iteration in that the correction term applied in each iteration should be limited to, say, ±1 or ±5%. This prevents divergence and oscillation that may otherwise occur in some cases.
