Bug Description

Binary package hint: gcalctool

Description: Ubuntu karmic (development branch)
Release: 9.10

  Instalados: 5.28.0-0ubuntu2
  Candidato: 5.28.0-0ubuntu2

Bug Description:

When a real number is changed, gcalctool always take it like 0

1. Open gcalctool
2. Type 0.2
3. Press Backspace button to erase the number 2
4. Press 6 number button
5. Press Multiply button
6. Press 8 number button
7. Press = button
8. Observe result

gcalctool, always works with integers if the real number is changed, e.g.: also happens when someone writes 0.54 and then 4 is erased, if any operation is used then is used the integers instead of real ones.

It does not matter how long is the real number, if it's erased just one time, then the gcalctool does not use it.
