Description of problem:
In scientific mode numbers like 2^y-1 (where y is from 55 thru 64) they are not displayed correctly in the 64bit binary display (1 and 0s). It usually just shows 2^y (the -1 does not update the binary display).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.55 thru 64
Actual Results: The binary bits are not updated after step 7.
Expected Results: Update binary display accordingly.

version and Fedora Core has an older one. Would it still be better to post bug
