Description of problem:
(-27)^(1/3) should be -3. However, it can't be calculated with Gcalctool.
I typed the sequence:

27
(+/-)
^
3
(1/x)
=

the Gcalctool then show ERROR


The problem seems to be solved in Gcalctool 5.5.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-utils-2.6.0-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do the calcuation

    

Actual Results:  ERROR (I am using Chinese, so indeed the error is in
Chinese)

Expected Results:  -3 for (-27)^(1/3)
