If ::format() is called with ::TYPE_DEFAULT, but the value is an
object which implements cast to number, the type is erroneously
assumed to be ::TYPE_INT32.

This issue has been reported by in r11.

Test script:
$fmt = new NumberFormatter('en_US', NumberFormatter::SPELLOUT);

Expected result:
string(157) "eighteen quadrillion fourteen trillion three hundred ninety-eight billion five hundred nine million four hundred eighty-one thousand nine hundred eighty-four"

Actual result:
string(108) "minus one billion one hundred twenty-nine million four hundred forty-seven thousand four hundred twenty-four"

Well, the expected result above is obviously wrong, but
apparently, we're additionally hitting an ICU4C bug here[1].

Anyhow, using ::PATTERN_DECIMAL instead of ::SPELLOUT, we get

    string(11) "-1129447424"

while we should expect

    string(21) "823749273428379400000"
