Column width is set to 63 cm.

It seems as though when importing a CSV file, the column width is chosen incorrectly in some times for scientific notation numbers.  It's as though it interprets the number (1.79E308) as 17900000...(308) of them, chooses the column width and then formats them better, in some cases. I have attached two CSV files, one works, the other doesn't. The only difference is the row order is flipped.

Works fine

I can confirm reproducible on LO (Win7 32bit). 

Column width incorrectly loaded if cell A2 'Scientific' formatted, while the other cells is 'Number' Standard Format.
But in Bug 59820 that happens even all cell A 'Number' Standard formatted. So possibly it's a duplicate to that bug.

I opened Cthe SV in LibreOffice

Build ID: 7bf567613a536ded11709b952950c9e8f7181a4a

(on Debian Linux machine)

The behaviour is correct (I added a screenshot of the resulting Calc document)
