scientific notation not working anymore in Maverick

Asked by marbertone

I'm a happy Ubuntu user. Surprisingly I noticed gcalctool's new look, and I remained very pleased. But then I discovered that pasting such a number as 1.00035284274E-002 into it gives me the following output:
"E not recognized"
Geeez! I switched to Ubuntu from Vista also because I work a lot w/ data (I'm a physicist) and the middle-click-paste was awesome to interface gvim and gcalctool. Now it doesn't work anymore...
shame on the new gcalctool!
