I'm trying to use gnumeric (version 1.0.12, inside gentoo linux) and
I get some strange number formatting errors.

Whenever I try to put specific numbers in cell using the standard
number format with 2 decimal places; I get a letter put in it's
place. e.g.  4 always comes out as 0.X0.

0 to 3, 32 to (I think) 511, 16384 to more than 2^32 work I think.
The others always generate 0.?0 where '?' is a random character
(i.e. not always alpha numeric).

Bizarre.  I have not seen or heard of anything like that before.
Can you send me a sample file that exhibits the problem with a
detailed example of exactly (very exactly) what you do to get this
result, along with details of what you see and what you expect to

Ideally this would go into for easy tracking.
