Quants only allowing whole number quantities

I am trying to use the Inventory Adjustment feature in Odoo v8. If I set the “Real Quantity” with a decimal value like 4.5 or 1.6, the Stock Move is created with decimal value but the Quant is created with the quantity rounded to the nearest whole number. And this means that the value of the quant is also wrong because it uses the cost price * the rounded quantity.

I have tried adjusting the decimal accuracy for the Product Unit of Measure to 4 and rebooting the server but I still get the same result.

Is it possible to configure Odoo to use decimal quantities on quants?

I was missing the requirement to enable different units of measure to allow non-whole number quantities on quants.

- go to Settings > Configuration > Warehouse and check the "Manage different units of measure for products" box
- go to Warehouse > Configuration > Units of Measure > "Unit(s)" and set the Rounding Precision to 0.10 instead of 1
