that looks like a bug in Sun's implementation, as the Double.toString() API
specs demand that Double.toString returns only as many digits as necessary to
uniquely identify the floating point number. 

Adding one or more '0' digits does not seem useful, as 0.001 and 0.0010 are
mathematically speaking the same number. It would in fact seem to violate the
API specifications.
