Details:

The following lines

graphics_toolkit qt
loglog(1./((1:10).^8))

produce initially a nice looking plot. After zooming out once by turning the
mouse wheel strange labels appear on the y ticks:

>> get(gca,"yticklabel")
ans =
{
[1,1] = 1.10^{-15}
[1,2] = 1.10^{-14}
[1,3] = 1.10^{-13}
[1,4] = 1.10^{-12}
[1,5] = 1.10^{-11}
[1,6] = 1.10^{-10}
[1,7] = 1.10^{-9}
[1,8] = 1.10^{-8}
[1,9] = 1.10^{-7}
[1,10] = 1.10^{-6}
[1,11] = 1.10^{-5}
[1,12] = 1.10^{-4}
[1,13] = 10^{-3}
[1,14] = 10^{-2}
[1,15] = 10^{-1}
[1,16] = 10^{0}
}

Switching a "screwed" figure to the FLTK toolkit preserves the faulty labels
whereas they do not show up in figures that were set to FLTK before the loglog
command.
