thanks for reporting this problem back.

I think the problem is that a locale that is using a comma instead of a dot
as decimal character was set. the problem should go away when openscad is
run e.g. with 'export LC_ALL=C' set.

I've fixed that now in svn trunk. So the bug should be gone in the next
