Now I've added some new tests to tests/mpz/t-jac.c:

  * check_jacobi_factored tests (a/b) where a is random and b has a known

  * check_large_quotients tests (a/b) where the quotient sequence of a
    and b contains large quotients, and b is prime. This test is
    currently disabled, since it's quite slow and involves a prime

Suggestion on how to make the latter test faster is appreciateed. If all
else fails, it could be enabled by some command line option, and the
default tests could include a few hard-coded inputs if this form.
