Numbers in exponent format could be written as 10d3 or 10e3.  The former interfered with expressions involving numbers in DMS format.

The fix was to disable use of 10d3 format.   The fix is in branch bugfix#58307 and has been merged to the master branch.

Fussy allows numbers in exponent-format to be written two ways.  E.g. 1000 can be written as "10e3" or "10d3".  The latter (10d3) interferes with numbers in DMS format (e.g. 10d30'30" format for angles).  As a result following kind of statements don't evaluate correctly:



Following however works correctly:
