Another bug in Free42 (3.0.14)
Here is a (maybe not-so-new) bug in Free42 found in the middle of a quite complex program that wasn't giving the right answer, until I single-step and checked each intermediate calculations.

open a new program space (GTO ..)
go to BASE menu, activate the HEX mode,
go to PROG mode, with BASE menu still active,
The HEXM indicator is turned off as expected,
enter the number 27,
exit BASE menu, exit PROG mode,
single step the program line,
you see the number 27,
you get 39.
The program line looks as a normal 27 decimal number, but is actually 27 hex.

Checked on Free42 Decimal, Windows version 3.0.14
On older Free42 1.x, 2.x, the program line is changed to 39, which is incorrect vs the HP-42S, but at least visible :-)
