Given the following code

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[scientific-notation = fixed, fixed-exponent = 0]{siunitx}

\listfiles

\begin{document}
   \SI{1e11}{\kg}
\end{document}

I get

./test.tex:9: Number too big.
<argument> 10000000000

l.9  \SI{1e11}{\kg}

However, in this related post, the accepted answer says that the problem was fixed in siunitx v2.6l (2015/09/14).

What is the problem?
