I looked at tkz-plot2d.sty and found your problem stems from the fact  
that the 1/exp(1) is not evaluated, but used as if it were a floating  
point number. If I replace line 162 of tkz-plot2d.sty (inside  
\tkz at fctpt's definition) by


then everything works fine. One should look if some of the other  
\FPset shouldn't be changed to \FPeval
