Annoying Little Problem

I'm having an annoying little problem with version 4.0.1.0. I wrote the 
following info in a notebook and ran it:

Clear[v2]
v2 = {4, 0, -6}
N[Sqrt[v2.v2]]
N[Sqrt[v2.v2], 3]

Now the third line gives me 7.2111 but the fourth line gives me the 
same instead of 7.21. Does anyone have any idea what may be the problem? 
Am I doing something wrong?

thanks,
Nalanji Dreaming
