    Description

      Hi, I've found some strange behaviour. Root allows you to call a variable "step" but it consistently returns nonsense. This is reproducible on different machines (lxplus, local desktops) in different root 6 versions. Root 5.34/32 treats "step" correctly:

      root [0] int step = 10
      (int) 10
      root [1] step
      (int) -74889133

      loroot [0] float step = 0.9
      (float) 9.000000e-01
      root [1] step
      (float) -1.425623e+36

      root [0] double step = 0.9
      (double) 9.000000e-01
      root [1] step
      (double) 9.252988e-268

      Cheers,
      Heather
