I'm not sure that catch (ArithmeticException e) is the best way to fix it, but at least this would emulate MRI behaviour (read #4324 for more context)

Fixes #4324

(Totally unrelated to your fix:) The appveyor CI job failed with this message:

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=2G;
  support was removed in 8.0
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for 3145728KB object heap

Hm, perhaps MAVEN_OPTS -Xmx2G could be something?

@olleolleolle I think that the ignoring option is just a warning because it's also printed on successful test runs:

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=2G; support was removed in 8.0
Running org.jruby.embed.internal.BiVariableMapTest
Tests run: 20, Failures: 0, Errors: 0, Skipped: 0, Time elapsed: 10.485 sec - in 

I'm more worried about other failures like uninitialized constant FFI::Platform. Perhaps we should create a separate issue to discuss ways how we can fix Appveyor.

@kirs najs fix ... although it looks a bit scary on first sight :)
the docs on java.math.BigDecimal#divide says throws ArithmeticException - if the exact quotient does not have a terminating decimal expansion ... so this should be very decent.

@kares if you reviewed this and are happy with it you can merge it. I felt out of depth on this one.
