Using a Dialect 3 database, yes it's a bug. I just ran it and got the same
result as Ann did. And, she is right that this problem should be fixed
ASAP. And, I think that FB 1.0 final release shouldn't be released before
it's fixed, because these kind of calculations can happen in a lot of
financial or analytical circumstances. And, it's a bug that shouldn't be
allowed to go any further.
