Yeah, not surprising.

That's on me as author of the commit message, I guess.  The rscale
in most of these functions is exactly the number of fraction digits
that will be emitted, and we changed the rules for computing it.
Not by much, in most cases.  I don't think we should be too worried
about being bug-compatible with the old behavior.
