[New-bugs-announce] [issue1232] %f prints the wrong 6 decimal places

New submission from Kevin McKiou:

>>> print "price is: %f" % 5.1234567
price is: 5.123457
I was testing the statement about "prints to 6 decimal places".  Sure 
enough, it printed only 6 decimal places, but it skipped over the 6th 
decimal place and printed the 7th.
I am using Python version 2.5.1 and IDLE version 1.2.1
