I began to use your excellent library and noticed that in prob.h, in the
functions similar to this one :

inline Prob LogPtoProb(LogP2 prob)
    if (prob == LogP_Zero) {
        return 0;
    } else {
    return exp(prob * M_LN10);

the base of the logarithm is changed via a multiplication.  From what I
understand of the function and of the logarithms
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithm#Change_of_base), I think that a
division should be used instead.

Thank you,

Alexandre Patry
