Infinite Pentation (and x-srt-x)

Now I doubt about the interpolation method.
If the interpolation of the self-tetra-root would yield a valid function,
then shoud the interpolation of the simple self-root also converge to the self-root on .
But this seems not to be the case.

An interpolation polynomial of degree 400 (401 sample points) still has a negative value at 0.25.
And if we compare the values it seems that the negativity gets rather worse:
101 points:
201 points:
301 points:
401 points:

So it really looks as if the interpolation (even if it converges) does not converge to which is positive everywhere.
So I would conclude that the interpolation of the self-tetra-root also does not converge to a self-tetra-root, even if it converges.
