Trade Strategy -- BUG? (Kebir Blue)

So periodically I go to the page which displays trade strategies for all my country's coorporations. And for some I try to enter in new selling strategies, with a start-% cost and montly reduction.

Problem is, when I enter these modifications, some of the numbers don't take. E.g. I set coorporation X from 121% market price to 123% market price. But when I "set strategies" and the screen refreshes, it's still 121%. At least sometimes.

When I go to set the change on the coorporation's own page it works fine -- but changing them one by one is a nuisance.

Oddly, at least sometimes the coorporation's own page reflects a different value than the "group" page -- e.g. on the list-of-all-coorps page it says that product quality is 120% and initial sale is 121%, but when I go to the coorp page it reads, under sale strategy, "start at 3% above market..." and reads the correct value when I check it on the "change strategy" page.

* Is the group page reading the wrong (older) data?

* Would it make more sense for that group page to display not absolute price but relative price. E.g. with product quality at 120% the starting price column reads as "3%" (i.e. 3% over market price, adjusted for quality, i.e. 123% of market price).

After all, it's *that* value which, I assume, is of actual interest, not the "absolute" value.
