Thanks for this bug report!

Oh my, mpf_eq was quite broken.  I had to rewrite it almost from scratch
to (hopefully) get it right.  I also wrote a systematic test case for it
which will become tests/mpf/t-eq.c.

Please try the attached replacement.  I will do some further testing
before I commit this to the repository.
