Follow-up Comment #13, bug #53167 (project octave):

You'll see that I removed output_max_field_width.  I did this because I
couldn't see the point of having it and had forgotten why it was needed.  But
now I see that bad things happen without it, for example, the following

fixed_point_format (false);
format short
for x = 1:3:12
  randn (10) * 10^x

previously would be displayed in E format once the values all became too large
for the max field width.

I suppose I should restore this behavior, but I'm not sure whether there
should be separate limits for single and double values.
