E misinterpreted in hex mode
In HEX mode, typed characters are not interpreted as hexadecimal digits.
Using the default calculator in ubuntu 7.10:
View -> scientific
enter 1e2 (for example)
click decimal gives 100.
It seems that lowecase letters are interpreted as special functions (I tried entering 1FFFF and got 1FunFunFunFun). Uppercase letters seem to work?
All upper or lowercase ABCDEF should be interpreted as hex digits in hex mode. I first tried a calculation with just an "e" in it and got very weird results, violating the principle of least surprise.
