Sensible default width and precision for real columns

In current dev 1.9 the default values for Width and Precision when adding a column to a table are 1 and 0 respectively for decimal/real type. It's unlikely that people would use real numbers and use this configuration, so I propose changing the defaults to perhaps Width=10 and Precision=5.
This was discovered when I was adding columns so I could manually move labels and wondered why my labels where disappearing when I saved the layer … to discover they had jumped to near Africa because my coordinates were being saved as 1,0 instead of 149.1178,-35.7456.
