Bug report #2780
New labeling engine does not support buffer size with decimals (e.g. 0.5 mm)

The new labeling engine property window recently, to my great pleasure, changed the buffer size option to allow decimal values. The engine however discards the decimals and round up the number to the closest integer. A 0.6 mm becomes a 1.0 mm, 0.3 mm becomes 0, etc.
If this can be fixed before the release of QGIS 1.5 (or 2.0, under the new labeling engine ;) ), that'd be fantastic.
(I placed this bug in the Symbology component, not sure if it's the right category)
