Description of problem:
In /usr/share/units.dat parsec is defined as:
parsec au / tan(arcsec)
which looks correct except that "au" is interpreted as "attoatomicmassunit" not
"astronomicalunit". The "au" needs to be spelled out to avoid the confusion.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "units"
2. Type "parsecs"
3. Type "km"
Actual Results: 2083 units, 71 prefixes, 32 nonlinear units
You have: parsecs
You want: km
Expected Results: It should have returned the number of kilometers in a parsec.
