Variable Jenks classification in QGIS

Added by Robin Lovelace over 11 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:master Regression?:No
Operating System:Ubuntu Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:end of life
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:15977


When I re-classified the bins using Jenk's classification, the bin values change substantially.
Nothing else changes: I just clicked "Classify" and every time a slightly different result emerged.
This is strange behaviour (Jenk's classification is not probabilistic, but requires a certain number of iterations I belive http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jenks_natural_breaks_optimization ).

To see this behaviour, please see this video:

Is this behaviour repeated on other versions of QGIS?
Any ideas why it's happening?
