Code​:
say 1.111111111111111111111

Result (2014.01 .. d6a9eda)​:
1.11111111111111111604544

The number itself is stored as a Rat so there should be no problem presenting it in a better way.

FWIW the title is very misleading, see this discussion​: https://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2017-10-16#i_15312269
