But this is not so in Chicken, which treats #e the same as calling inexact->exact, and so returns +inf.0, which is neither exact nor correct. When #e is present, the result needs to be computed by bignum/ratio arithmetic, even if what follows is a decimal fraction.

As discussed on IRC, this was just an old version of numbers, fixed by reinstalling
In CHICKEN 5 and in CHICKEN 4 with the numbers egg, I get 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Without the numbers egg, it'll return +inf.0 of course...
How did you test this?
