You've made three groups with parentheses. Just drop them:

>>> re.findall('-?\d+[.]\d+|-?\d+[.]?|-?[.]\d+', 'asdf6.7jjjj7.33ff9')
['6.7', '7.33', '9']

Everything is according to documentation: "If one or more groups are
present in the pattern, return a list of groups; this will be a list of
tuples if the pattern has more than one group."

http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.findall

I would suggest to close this bug.
