           Summary: inconsistant numbering (scientific notation) in status
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: RedHat RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: matt truch net

Version:           1.0.0_devel (using KDE KDE 3.2.2)
Installed from:    RedHat RPMs
OS:                Linux

The cursor position (or actual vector values when in datamode) are displayed in the statusbar at the bottom of a kst window.  Sometimes normal notation and scientific notation are mixed in a strange way.  For example:  If the value of exactly 100 appears, it will display that as '1E+02', but as you move the cursor up it reads '101', '102', '103', etc., and down it reads '99', '98', '97'.  Logically you would expect it to read '100'.  I imagine this also happens at 1000, but I have not tried it.  

Expected behavior: It only switches to scientific notation when it 'makes sense to do so, ie for large and small values', and does not switch between the two needlessly or at intermediate values.
