Ah, that needed to be updated as well!

.... but I rather think that what is invalidated is the QR precision testing!
Indeed your patch introduced m_precision in QR but it was never used
in the computation of the QR decomposition, only in the rank() and
solve() methods. So what's really needed is to make eps2 honor the

I can't tell whether the creation of random rank r matrices was
affected by that or not.
