What's the expected value of y? I'm not that familiar with complex trig
functions. I tried evaluating it in pari/gp, which gives
? x = 3.09126495087690770626068115234375e+8 + I*-4.045689747817175388336181640625e+8
%2 = 309126495.08769077062606811523437500000 - 404568974.78171753883361816406250000000*I
*** at top-level: tan(x)
*** tan: the PARI stack overflows !
current stack size: 8000000 (7.629 Mbytes)
[hint] set 'parisizemax' to a non-zero value in your GPRC
which makes me think the value is somehow badly behaved.

That we end up in gmp's fft multiply code also indicates a huge number.
I don't think code trying to evaluate a number to IEEE double precision
should ever do that.

My best guess is that mpfr should detect the difficulty, fail and return
an inf or NaN as appropriate.
I'd imagine it's generally a bit tricky to accurately compute
trigonometric functions for large inputs, since one needs an accurate
subtraction of the right multiple of pi.
