digit appears before the decimal point if the total field width will permit it.

This works ok for other values:

  • Status changed from new to assigned

This is caused by lisp::scale-exponent. For 1d-6, it returns 0.99999999999...d0 and -6. And the .9999999... gets printed as 1.0 with an exponent of -6.
