Yes: it doesn't follow the decimal floating point standard. Read PEP327
for an exhaustive discussion of the subject WRT Python (which is nowhere
near as exhausting as reading the discussion in the python-dev archives).
Side note: I haven't bothered checking recently, but since you were
complaining about the quality of technical responses on c.l.py, I've
been mostly ignoring you because of your habit of top-posting.
