Revenue amounts do not match General Ledger amounts when selling stock

After stock is received in the system as a payment it can subsequently be sold for a gain or loss.  Sometimes when after selling stock for specific amounts you may notice that underlying General Ledger amounts and the revenue amounts shown are the stock sale are off by a penny.
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future patch or service pack.
