Current Saving doesn't seem to add Net contributions to total correctly

Just started using ESPlanner today, so this may be a stupid question. In the Assets and Savings, Current Savings tab, The Real Asset Income is pre-populated. Mine, for example is 1800. On the line for Net Contributions to Savings, etc accounts, if I put a 2 there, I get a total at the bottom of 1802. If I put a 20 there, I get a total of 1820. If I put a 200 there, I get a total of 2000. So far, so good. If I put a a 2000 in the Net Contributions line, however, I get a total of 1802. What's going on? What am I missing?

This is the interest earned or "earnings" for the year based on your assumed nominal rate of return for regular assets.

That wouldn't seem to explain why a 20 gets added directly while a 2000 gets added as 2. Nor does it jibe with the fact that the bottom line is labeled "Equals current saving"

Are you using the most recent release. There was a bug in that area that I believe was fixed in the most recent release: 2.35.2

Yes, I'm on the most recent release.

OK, I thought that was fixed in this release. It does not affect the results except for the "current year report" which is a current year snapshot. But it will not change discretionary spending or saving recommendations in the main reports.
