[Axiom-developer] list bug

Yes, the GCL log10 bug is independent of the other bugs.
I'm certain that i-output could use better algorithms to
compute the length of numbers but the change would have
to be carefully applied as an incorrect length causes
ALL output to change. For example, undercounting the 
length leads to the behavior:

[1000] ==> [100]

but overcounting the length changes printing of many 
things including result numbers and polynomials thus:

 (8 )  4 x + 1

whereas the current result is

 (8)  4x + 1

The i-output code is very, very old, likely from the late 60s.
