[R] breaks in hist()

I was using the hist() function to create a frequency table of some network
traffic data. The range in values is rather large, from 0 till just under
10e12. Calling hist(x, breaks=c(0,1000,1e6,1e9,1e12),plot=F,freq=T) causes
hist() to return :

[1] -1.0000e+05  1.0100e+05  1.1000e+06  1.0001e+09  1.0000e+12

Is this recalculation of the breaks by hist() intended?
