Note that things are not so simple with nonlinear tests. Depending on the curvature of transformation, you can get different results. See Drukker's paper in STB-54 on that. Also, if the slope is not statistically significant, then you are essentially diving by zero, and thus any reasonable method should give you something like infinite variance of your ratio. If you are interested in something like the point of zero crossing (judging from the form of your nonlinear combination), then you can use inverse regression / regression calibration approach to construct it. See my -calibr- procedure that I hope is downloadable from somewhere on the Net.
