Here's the essence of an open ticket we've got with Rocket for Universe
10.3.7 on a windows server:


0001       FOR II = 1 TO 18
0002          CRT FMT(II, "2R"): " ": FMT(10^II + 1, "35R,")
0003       NEXT II
0004       STOP
 1                                  11
 2                                 101
 3                               1,001
 4                              10,001
 5                             100,001
 6                           1,000,001
 7                          10,000,001
 8                         100,000,001
 9                       1,000,000,001
10                      10,000,000,001
11                     100,000,000,001
12                   1,000,000,000,001
13                  10,000,000,000,001
14                 100,000,000,000,001
15               1,000,000,000,000,000
16              10,000,000,000,000,000
17             100,000,000,000,000,000
18           1,000,000,000,000,000,000

See anything wrong with the least significant column?
