Incorrect display while editing a 000 formatted number in 4.0.3510.2008

    Running the Excel clone sample, I formatted a cell as a number with thousand separator using the comma symbol on the Cell type section of the Home toolbar. I then entered a number (9999999) directly into the cell and the number is formatted correctly at all times when entering the number. However, having entered the number in the cell, if you start to edit it and press delete or backspace the formatting of the number whilst editing the cell will not be correct and the text you see will be "9,99.00" or similar. When you finish editing the number, the formatting will then change to show the number correctly.

    I am fairly sure this did not occur in previous versions.

    I was able to reproduce this issue and have reported this as a bug (#25729) for the development team to fix for the next maintenance release.

    Can you tell me when that is due?

    I do not have an exact date at this time, but we work to have maintenance releases done quarterly, so I would expect the first part of July for this issue to be fixed.
