Hmmm - that surprises me. I look at the code in the file
basic_text_oprimitive.hpp and I find:

void save(const float t)
    // must be a user mistake - can't serialize un-initialized data
    os << std::setprecision(std::numeric_limits<float>::digits10 + 2);
    os << t;

Is this code not correct? Note that I added in 2 extra digits. Or
is this code not getting invoked? Let me know.
