8896,0.0000000000000000000000000000 is parsed completely differently than 1.0000000000000000000000000000 for no good reason,was,AlexGhitza,"In Sage 0.0 and 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000 denote exactly the same thing (a zero with the same precision). However, that 1.0 and 1.00000000000000000000000000000000000000 are different in Sage:

Some people consider the above inconsistency a bug.
