True. It's probably setting the precision to 127 or 255 now! (It's automatically
truncated to between 0 and 9 by util_fptostr.) I'll look into it, probably by the end
of the week, this sounds easy to fix. If you want to look into it, check out
src/engine/util.c around line 400, which is where the char attributes in the lconv
structure are set (it's called by the subroutine below). The default values are
255/-1, which should be equal to CHAR_MAX if it's built without -fsigned_char.
If you could keep testing this version, and let me know if any other problems come up,
I'll send you a patch to fix the precision problem.
I hope you don't mind that I'm CCing this back to the bug and both lists, I think it's
helpful information that someone else can build on.
