From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051216 Fedora/1.5-3 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
In scientific mode numbers like 2^y-1 (where y is from 55 thru 64) they are not displayed correctly in the 64bit binary display (1 and 0s).  It usually just shows 2^y (the -1 does not update the binary display).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
3.55 thru 64
5.- (minus)


Actual Results:  The binary bits are not updated after step 7.

Expected Results:  Update binary display accordingly.

FYI - I would have posted this bug @ but I know that they have a newer

Hi Peter,

If you post the bug upstream you will likely get a response sooner.  In general
it is a good idea to post bugs upstream if they aren't distribution specific.  

If you do file upstream can you provide a link to the bug here?
