Is it perhaps squandering higher levels of precision by carrying forward rounded up/down display values rather than underlying register values?

One bug is that the 'ans' memory re-parses the displayed textual output of the last answer as its input. So for example:

1/9*9 = 1
1/9 = 0.111111
ans*9 = 0.999999
