Bug Description

On KDE 4.7.x

You cannot enter numbers larger than 9999 in the calculator (either with the
mouse or with the keyboard). Calculator shows "0" after the fourth digit.

Steps to Reproduce:
Try entering 12345+1

Type 1 > On screen you get "1"
Type 2 > On screen you get "12"
Type 3 > On screen you get "123"
Type 4 > On screen you get "1.234"
Type 5 > On screen you get "0"

This has already been broken for 4 point releases (4.7.0 to 4.7.3) without any sign of activity on https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=281484. Please patch kubuntu's kde to remove /usr/lib/kde4/plasma_applet_calculator.so altogether. It is not a required package, there is a valid substitute (kalgebra) and having broken stuff around does not help the user experience.
