  • Component changed from Transmission to Mac Client
  • Owner set to livings124

The gtk client uses [g_format_size_for_display http://library.gnome.org/devel/glib/2.15/glib-Miscellaneous-Utility-Functions.html#g-format-size-for-display] for consistency with the rest of the applications on the desktop. I agree with your rationale but IMO consistency outweighs this, so I won't be making this change in the gtk+ client.

This is consistent on Mac as well.
