Actually 19 digits works. The thing that's wrong is that the compiler uses
_all_ provided digits. Instead, according IEEE754, it should only take the
first 19 digits, performing decimal rounding of the l9th digit if more digits
are provided.

It's a problem in DMC's standard library implementation of strtold().

I once found a case where adding more decimal digits made the number smaller(!)
