The reason for expecting that is simply that it's the natural (i.e. not buggy) behavior, not because I expect a 48: if I can put something on the stack, it should be preserved when I pick it from the stack (that's effectively how things have worked since the 35, and is basic RPN logic), and it puzzle's me the that's not what happens.

But I think we have the answer above: RPN isn't really part of the Prime's design, so it wasn't fully addressed in the final product (e.g. the equation template either should have been disabled in RPN mode, or picking an equation should have — well — picked the equation; also the documentation describes a lot of things that don't work in RPN, without clearly saying that they don't work there).
