Thanks for this report!

We have a completely new number parser in the 1.7 series (which is to
be released soonish, hopefully) that handles these cases fine.

The question now is should we port it back to 1.6 and risk the
instability that this might cause?

Right now, I'd say that we should leave 1.6 buggy, since no sane
program should be using symbols like '1.2+3.4+0ii'.
