Something happened to the first line in my previous post. For what it's worth, here's the first paragraph.

Excellent: this explains Excel's answer, too---it's in the negative direction. It just looks closer to zero because -2.77556E-17 is also close to 0 when we're not using modulo 0.1 arithmetic, and so more obviously rounds to 0---which is 0.1.
