Description Svick 2008-01-25 19:16:29 UTC
If I let Wikipedia evaluate expression {{ #expr:1000000 }}, it sometimes shows 1000000, but sometimes 1.0E+6. The change happens only when the page is regenerated. I think it is beacause WP uses both 32- and 64-bit servers and they generate different results, like in this bugreport:
You can try it here:
This isn't just cosmetic, because some WP templates expect the correct value (without 'E').

Did a batch check to confirm all servers rendering this as expected currently.
