Bug Description

Steps to reproduce the issue:

1) Type in "5×5=".
2) Press the edit button on the last result.
3) Press "=".

What happens:

The result isn't displayed, but it is added to the history.

Proposal:

In my opinion it should still display the result, even though it is identical to the last entry, as that is what the user is trying to do when pressing "=".

Unfortunately I cannot reproduce this issue. I have:
1. type "5*5"
2. type "=" (result is displayed)
3. I'm pressing at result "25" and copy.
4. Pressing "=" doesn't change anything because the same result is in the last entry in history.

Could you please give some screenshot?

I'm sorry. The word copy wasn't correct here. Use the edit button.

1) Type in "5×5=".
2) Press the edit button on the last result.
3) Press "=".

What happens:

The formula isn't calculated, but it is added to the history.
