I am having troubles with defining UoM ratio as 6 (or 3,7,etc) which causing strange side effects while trying in reception and delveiry of the product. 

Basically when saving 6 as ratio to reference UoM I am getting 5.999999999988  which causes issues with using larger quantities (seems that quants are not correct or rounded incorrectly).

Any solution or work around is recommended?

This was an (~20) October version of Odoo, just did a fresh install and that looks OK like in your screenshot. I hope the upgrade works fine for me :-)
