FPU divide by 0 and High Current Consumption

I was trying to track down high, approx. 6mA, processor current consumption and I have found high current consumption if the FPU executes a divide by 0. If I comment out the line the current consumption goes down to tens of micro amps. If the line is executed then the current is high since the processor is constantly coming out of sleep.

How does the the SDK deal with a divide by 0 with the FPU? I thought this was a hard fault?

Thanks
