Comment(by sjamaan):

 Found this in the most unlikely place you'd expect it, the
 Wikipedia page for printf()]

 > The exponent always contains at least two digits; if the value is zero,
 the exponent is 00. In Windows, the exponent contains three digits by
 default, e.g. 1.5e002, but this can be altered by Microsoft-specific
 _set_output_format function.

 I guess we can include a call to this weird [
 us/library/0fatw238.aspx _set_output_format thing].  I don't have a
 Windows box to test on, but can someone try the attached patch?
