I don't think that's the intent at all. While it's common for
neophytes to be uncomfortable with the vagaries of IEEE 754
arithmetic, there is quite possibly at least a cosmetic bug here in
how Octave is representing a number, namely, it doesn't display the
same thing Matlab does. I do believe current trend is to consider most
Matlab incompatibilities as bugs. It's a question of output, not an
actual functionality bug.
