Probably inf - inf or 0 * inf are NaN, I haven't checked the specs.

No, because NaN compares always result in false:


Workaround/fix might be:

if (!(f > x->lo)) f = x->lo;
if (!(f < x->hi)) f = x->hi;

But this might all be screwed up depending on how Pd and/or freeverb is 
compiled, I know some inf/nan things can behave even more strangely with 
-ffast-math (for example, Pd .git has no mention of it as far as I can
