Symptoms

The add transaction and the inter-unit transfer will calculate the conversion of a currency differently. The results are of a fraction of 1 cent.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-------------------------
The result of the currency conversion should yield the same amount, no matter the transaction.

Steps to replicate
--------------------
Using Express Add, create asset with INR currency for the amount of 7393 in BU US001. And calculate depreciation.
Then create another asset in the IND01 BU which uses currency INR. Then transfer this asset to BU US001.
Compare the cost on both US001 assets. The cost is different by a fraction of 1 cent.
