Emerald 2.5.284 and higher corrected a rounding problem that was
present in Emerald 2.5.26x through 2.5.283. It would round the
values read from the DB to two digits BEFORE the calculations,
which cause major accuracy problems.

After looking at his numbers, he was relying on the rounding
for his numbers to come out correctly (and lower than they
should have). Unfortunately, the fix is causing his numbers to
have four more cents that he wants.
