[docs] Python 2.6 Float Error

I'm running:
Python 2.6.2 (r262:71605, Apr 14 2009, 22:40:02) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

I was testing out some print functionality and I made an error in typing (I meant to use %8.8f), but is this behavior intentional or is it an error?
>> print '%8.8s' %(10000000001.)
>> '10000000'

I would expect this to return a TypeError.
