Calculator bug (NOT. Total PEBKAC. Oops)

Calculator bug (NOT. Total PEBKAC. Oops)
Update: NOTHING TO SEE HERE - Worst PEBKAC ever!

Maybe this has already been reported.

If I type

calculator compute=5157692/3124

The output is 1650.9897567222

It should say 1683.

What's going on?

If I divide it by 1000, I get 5257.692 which is correct, but I get 2578.846 instead of 2628.846 when dividing by 2000.

Re: Calculator bug
What bug? 5157692/3124 gives 1650.989756722 and 5157692/2000 gives 2578.846, but you use 2 different numbers 5157692 and 5257692, looks like human error to me.

By dividing 5157692 with 3124 I get 1650,989756722151 on Win7 Calc.

Uh. Perhaps i'm an idiot and typed in the wrong number :) That's the signal to sleep.
