Granted. But while using glade and meddling a bit with GnomeNumberEntry
that ugly thing poped up and invaded my desktop (me in melodramatic mode)
and I decided on the spot that this would happen no more to me ...
Nevertheless: Is there some interest for a second calculator widget ?
Or should I cancel this thread in gnone-devel and ask the same question
in gtk-devel ?

My feelings exactly. But I still believe that a formular based one is more
intuitive than a normal desktop calculator which makes a mind game of every
calculation with more than one or two operators ... just typing the
equation (without equal sign :-) and pressing Ctrl-Enter seems _much_ more
userfriendly to me.
