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).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
3.55 thru 64
5.- (minus)


Actual Results:  The binary bits are not updated after step 7.

Expected Results:  Update binary display accordingly.

If you do file upstream can you provide a link to the bug here?
