The below  is very possible (except for the gimp comparison) meaning we may
be making black where it should be white.  But as Andrew implied old
projects may suddenly provide different unexpected results if we change it.

Much work was performed to follow one of many versions of the Overlays from
various other software packages.  In the Description section of the
Overlays chapter in the manual, it states:
Divide: Divides source color by destination color. If the source color is
white, the
result color is the underlying color. The resulting image is often lighter.
*Mathformula used is different than that used by Gimp*; there is no SVG

I believe that CinGG when rewriting the code several years ago attempted to
follow the algorithm that currently existed in Cinelerra HV version at the
time, but the image I had included earlier comparing CinGG with HV 4.6.1 is
so different.  One or the other is inconsistent.  Changing it to match Gimp
is not desirable, however it would be great to fix an obvious bug.
