The following code produces different BigDecimal results in 2.0.0 vs. 2.1.1:

require 'big decimal'
require 'bigdecimal/util'

2.0.0 returns: #<BigDecimal:7fa7fc04dc28,'0.7316894709 885124E0',18(45)>
2.1.1 returns: #<BigDecimal:7fabd1a25768,'0.7316894709 88512E0',18(36)>

2.1.1 is a digit short. Related to #9305?

I did come across this Github PR (https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/323) which changed the default precision on Float#to_d.

If 2.1.1 is the proper behavior and compatibility with the behavior of 2.0.0 is not desired, please close this bug.
