This is the motivation of my question, and my guess as to why the function appears to behave erratically when X approaches zero.

In the range we are interested in, the solution to √(TAN(X)+1) = √(SIN(X)+1) is X=0. Both functions are well behaved in that interval. I concede that there is no reason for the original function to behave erratically other than a lack of precision as X approaches 0.

Sorry to have taken you down the wrong trail.
