This happens with an empty type field in the format specification:

>>> "{0:1}".format(-1.23)
'.0-1.23'

With type "g" it's ok:

>>> "{0:1g}".format(-1.23)
'-1.23'

Thanks for catching this.  I was not skipping the leading sign char when
looking for the decimal point in the string, which was causing me to
incorrectly determine that a decimal wasn't present.

Fixed in r65125 (trunk) and r65126 (py3k).
