Bug Description

Steps to produce error:

1. Go to _Programming_ mode,
2. Write whatever number and press enter,
3. Change representation (for example, from Decimal to Hexadecimal, or any other),
  - You get the number in a new representation (in bold),
4. Write an operation (for example *3)

You would see:


where N is bold. Pressing enter, results in "Malformed expression". If you delete the *3 and press enter, you still get the same message.

If instead of step 4, you simply press enter, you also get this message.
