Description of problem:
I have tried this on both a i686 laptop and athlon desktop. When
computing a percentage of a number; all it does is multiply the
number. when doing 100 * 10% it should give a number of .1, but
instead it multiplies the number 100*10 % and gives the answer of 1000.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. bring up calculator
2. press any number (ie.100)
3. hit the times sign (*)
4. press another number (ie. 10)
5. then press the percent sign (%)
Actual Results: when pressing the % sign it acts like your pressing
the equals button
Expected Results: to give a percentage of the number
I reproduced the problem with gnome-utils-2.4.0-1. Change the
component to gnome-utils please.
I suggest we continue discussing this bug upstream.
Doug, there is already a patch available. I suggest you test it, and
comment your test results on the upstream bug report.
Not a bug. See upstream.
as seen upstream, this is not a bug...or if it is its a 10+ year old bug.
