           Summary: Decimal places are being represented with random
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20040813
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-ole
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: rglover at npc.net

The example Visual Basic code below should produce "TEST 12.5", but instead it
outputs "TEST 12.__" where the underscores are the little squares you get when a
character is missing from the character set.  Since I can in fact see the 1 and
the 2 in 12, I'm assuming that I should also see the 2 just after the decimal
point, but I just see the square.

  Private Sub Form_Load
  MsgBox ("TEST " & Format$(12.26, "0.00"))
  End Sub

In the (larger) application that I had been testing when I ran across this, I
noticed that the number of squares seems a bit random: changing from call to call.

I took a peek at the source code, and settled on oleaut32/varformat.c as a
likely place, but I'm just not sure that's the right place.
