#884: fromfile and fromstring locale dependency

Comment (by pv):

 Another forgotten issue:

   - Since strtod returns a double, there is loss of precision for long
 doubles. The `*_fromstr` functions have always used `strtod`, and now the
 same issue concerns also the `*_scan` functions. (Anyway, now at least
 `*_fromstr` and `*_scan` behave identically.)
