Extension floating point default value and locales

Asked by Nick on 2010-04-28

I'm writing gcode tools extension (http://www.cnc-club.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=35#p65) and faced another problem:
How can I adjust proper default value to the floating point parameter?

If I run Inkscape in Russian locale, then it thinks that "0.02" is "0", because in Russian locale default delimiter is "," instead of "." in English one. This problem may appear in other locales.

Confirmed with French OS locale. Looks like a bug in the extension system.
When the value is modified in the extension dialog, it is correctly saved to the preferences.xml file (as 0.02) and correctly displayed in the UI (as 0,02).
Works as expected if the locale default delimiter is set to ".".
Converting this question to a bug report.

Can you help with this problem?
