Description of problem:
It appears that kcalc was built wrong (with insufficient precision) in the latest update to fedora core 4. The previous version worked fine (kdeutils-3.4.2-0.fc4.1). I checked and there appear not to be any changes to the kcalc sources between these versions, so I conclude the problem is in how kcalc was built this time as opposed to last time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
To demonstrate the problem, bring up kcalc, ensure that the default precision settings are in the kcalc configuration, and do the following computation:
123456.78 + 123456.78 = ?
Actual Results: With the latest version you get 246,914.
Expected Results: With the previous version you get the correct answer, 246913.56.
Ãt's a bug in new version of kcalc.
it's now fixed in CVS kde upstream. The fixes is included in rawhide.
