I'm going to be more careful using parentheses from now on.

Chris, this looks perfectly correct to me. Exponentiation is associative from right to left. The question is, how did you enter the expressions?

2 xy 2 xy 2 xy 2

returns your first example, while

2 x2 x2 x2

returns the second.

To avoid ambiguity stick with RPN! :-)
