Yup. It's the floating point control word bits, set with fldcw (get the x86 Instruction Set Reference PDF from Intel -- it's about a 1000 page download).
Warning: calling some DLLs (including DirectX) will change the rounding and precision bits from underneath you. Re-set the bits at the start of each simulation step!
