With maxima 5.32.1 (5.32.1-1 in Debian i386), 1000!^0.01 gives i.nfE+6166368:
Here is a transript:
Maxima 5.32.1 http://maxima.sourceforge.net
using Lisp GNU Common Lisp (GCL) GCL 2.6.10 (a.k.a. GCL)
I noticed this bug in 5.30.0 (which gave i.nfE+142498684), and it is Debian bug #707596 (i.e http://bugs.debian.org/707596 )
No doubt 1000! overflows the floating-point range, but I think maxima should say something to that effect instead of giving a random answer.
