0007323: A mother for bugs and problems with Fractions.
There are a number of known problems with fractions.
I.E. Numbers whose class = Fraction.
And this has caused pain for developers and those that would use numbers to their fullest.

This is a parent issue to connect reports on those problems.
Warpbit can choke if given fractional coordinates.

Things like n/m that you think will produce floats give you fractions instead.

And fractions themselves may turn into integers at any time.

If you do want to use fractions some of the most useful messages are private.
e.g. numerator and denominator.

If you use them anyway you get offbase answers.

All of these have (or will have) their own report.

Here we tie things together and point to hard to reach closed issues.

Since all issues are close, bye bye mother...
By the way, Mantis has quite decent filter viewing, so what's the point of all these mothers?
