GOTCHA/BUG: Cameo Simulation Toolkit v2021xR1 + Mathematica: Delegation to Mathematica from ConstraintBlocks FAILS if any of the input or output parameters are larger than 99999 because they get interpreted as 1.0e5 and that trips something! Aarrrggggh!

Delegation to Mathematica from ConstraintBlocks in Magic Model Analyst® (Cameo Simulation Toolkit®) v2021xR1 FAILS if any of the input parameters or output parameters are larger than 99999 because they get interpreted as 1.0e5 and that trips something! Aarrrgggggh!}
The simulation console gives an error message 'ERROR: The result is not a number'
And it also fails for numbers as lower than 0.0001. For example, 0.00001 is interpreted as 1.0e-5, causing the same error. Aarrrgggggh!}

Yeah, sure, in the real world I turn to Mathematica instead of the built-in maths because I only want to use numbers below 99999 and not a small as 0.00001. Not!

A partial workaround is to use user-defined (custom) Mathematica functions that perform internal conversions. It can also be done with mini SysML converter ConstraintBlocks, but if you do that be sure not to leave the constraint language as 'Mathematica', lest it fail because of the same bug.
