Question: Issue with testeq?

Consider the equation

eqn1:=5^(2*abs(y-1)+2) = (1/15625)*625^abs(y-1);

and note that

eval( eqn1, y=-3);
eval( eqn1, y=5);

both return valid solutions. So why does


throw a numeric exception.

Given the manual description of testeq(), I would expect it to return either true or FAIL - but not a numeric exceprion!!!!

Any ideas?
