Bug: Changing Estimated Time using Minutes

If someone enters an estimate for something using minutes, say 5 minutes FogBugz converts that to 0.08hrs. Which is annoying to start with, because it's hard to figure out what 0.08hrs are.

If someone then changes the estimate from 0.08hrs to 5 minutes (maybe because they couldn't be bothered figuring what 0.08hours is), it shows up as a change in the case history.

"Estimate changed from '0.08 hours' to '0.08 hours'."

Can fogbugz please show minutes, and not add something to this history when nothings changed.

Sorry about that - the underlying data is stored in hours, so I suspect that FogBugz is rounding 5 minutes = 0.0833333333 hours to 0.08 hours, and that's why it shows up as a change.  I'll see if we can look into changing the default format.
