This difference comes from the the difference of behaviors of strtod.

Good strtod:

   4.9E-324 == 4.9406564584125E-324 == Double.MIN_VALUE
   So it is printed in the minimum precision.

My poor strtod:

   String other than "4.9406564584124654418e-324" cannot be
   Double.MIN_VALUE.  So maximum precision is required for
   printing Double.MIN_VALUE.
