Moving / Transform in the negative direction using Feet & Inches

When moving a piece of my model geometry in Simulate 2012 I might type -22ft 6in.  Should be fine it does move the object but when I check it again it will say it moved -21ft 6in.  Moves fine in the positive direction but when moving negative It's always 1' less than what I'm trying to get.  Any ideas..?

Same strange behavior in Manage.

If i want to move an object on negative z and enter '-3ft 6in' for example, after i leave that text box it shows '-2ft 6in'.

I have to put a minus sign before the inches also to have it move right, like '-3ft -6in'.

Also there are some other strange behaviors of these textboxes where you enter values to manipulate objects, depending the way you enter the values. Probably they were design to work with metric system and are not workig too great with the imperial units.
