#69 wrong number recognition in "E" format

calc basic (17)

When I enter 4e-2 and hit "enter", the number is regarded as 0.0025, instead of 0.04. I couldn't believe why this big a bug is kept alive.

    I tried a few more tests on this problem. I forgot to mention, but have been using galculator v1.3.2 on Scientific Linux, mostly with RPN mode.

    Above mentioned bug occured only when I used a key sequence of "4" "EE" "2" "+/-" and "enter" (or operation keys in normal mode). If I type "4" "EE" "+/-" "2", it is recognized correctly as 0.04, although the number displayed on the "current number field" is exactly the same.
