When converting float variables to and from real variables, the actual value
gets munged up in to something indecipherable. real values converted to strings
print out wrong values, and converting them back to floats keep garbage values
about.

I discovered this one when using std.json, which uses the real type to track
floating point values rather than float/double. Currently working around it by
making a copy of std.json, sticking it in another namespace, and replacing real
with double.

Tested with latest beta.

I suggest to add a small test case that shows the problem.
