  Wrong exponential notation used in programming mode

Status in gnome-calculator package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In programming mode the calculator is primarily used for doing integer

  However integer results are shown in exponential notation and the
  result does NOT represent the correct integer!


  - Calculate 2^40.
  - The result 1.099511628×10^12 is shown which is the integer 1099511628000
  - However the correct result is 1099511627776, not 1099511628000

  A possible change which might solve this:

  Change the selection:
  - Binary
  - Octal
  - Decimal
  - Hexadecimal

  - Binary
  - Octal
  - Scientific decimal
  - Programmer decimal
  - Hexadecimal

  "Scientific decimal" would behave like it does today.
  "Programmer decimal" would behave the same way as Binary, Octal and 
Hexadecimal and display integers like 2^40 as 1099511627776, not as
