I think this is just showing that the floating point conversion
routines on your system are not perfect and that they start `making
up' digits once there is no more information (I'd probably call that a
bug, but maybe the designer(s) of these conversion algorithms had some
reason for doing things this way).

In any case, I've reduced the default save_precision to 15 for the
next release.
