Calculate significant digit calculations may be exponentializing Integer numbers one digit early

Description
- Set Calculate to only show 6 digits in the result.
- Calculate the result of "1/3", which should be "0.333333" {6 significant digits}.
- Calculate the result of "1e4", which should appear as "10000" {5 significant digits, so to speak}
- "1000.119" results in "1000.11" {6 digits shown, although an interesting truncation.}
- Calculate the result of "1e5". This appears as "1x10^{5}", not "100000", which has 6 digits in it. Is this correct, or are we refusing to show an extra digit for integer numbers where we would do so for decimal numbers?
Again seen in Calculate 36.
