Description Doug Maurer 2004-02-21 23:54:17 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

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):
GcalcTool 4.3.3

How reproducible:

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.
Comment 2 Bart Martens 2004-02-22 13:32:16 EST
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.
Comment 3 Bart Martens 2004-02-23 00:22:13 EST
Not a bug. See upstream.
Comment 4 Jef Spaleta 2004-02-25 14:28:59 EST
as seen upstream, this is not a bug...or if it is its a 10+ year old bug.
