Summary 0007152: Mother of squeak roundoff and truncation errors.
Description This is a parent issue for bugs caused by rounding and truncation errors.

It is similar to 0006511 (mother of morphic graphical off by one errors) but for more general problems.
Steps To Reproduce
Additional Information Squeak allows numbers to be polymorphic.

This can lead to numeric inaccuracies.

The case that prompted this reports creation (0007142) shows what can
happen when floats and large integers mix.

I am sure their must be others.
