Thanks for finding the relevant piece of code.  I did look, but wasn't
au fait enough with C or the R way of doing things to spot the relevant

How about replacing:
	        sprintf(buffer, " %.00f ", zc);
	        sprintf(buffer, " %.9g ", zc);

It seems to do what I want, and not behave any differently from before
for integer contour lines.
