Unexpected scientific notation

One of my users has reported that my app is giving them scientific notation instead 
of decimal notation for one specific value among many that display properly. I am 
unable to reproduce on my end, and this is the first I've heard of anything like this 
since the app's launch 2 years ago.

The app bundles python 2.5.2 using py2exe.

It displays '3E+1' instead of '30.0'.

As I can't reproduce I'm looking for an idea brainstorm of what could be causing 
this. What would be choosing to display such a normal number in scientific notation?
