Formating - When value crosses 1000 justification jumps to left.

Conversion - When you change map units in project properties there is no conversion just changes the unit text. If you change from meters to feet for instance it will show 1 mile at 1000 feet.

I can't reproduce the problem with formatting in 0.11 on GNU/Linux or Windows XP.

But the second issue still takes place, at least partially, both on Windows and GNU/Linux. Miles <-> kilometers transformation is OK, however if you zoom in so that hundreds of meters are displayed instead of kilometers, and change the project units, QGIS will claim that e.g. 200 m=200 feet. Easy to verify using map scale plugin.

This is the intended behaviour. The setting reflects what base unit is used, e.g the distance between (0,10) and (10,10) is set at 10 meter or 10 feet.
