Summary

x * x ≠ x^2 ???

Description of the issue

I am not sure this qualifies as a bug as such, but it is a very strange behavior that could indicate a possible bug.  To reproduce, open Data Viewer and type the following expression: 10^203 * 10^203 The result is, quite correctly, 1.0e+406.  Now change the expression to: (10^203)^2 This produces an error (Error#14 - Out of range).
