Buying kibble
I just bought some more Kibble through the cattery. I had 850 'purchased K$', and have 0 'menagerie K$', yet when buying I got the prompt:

Do you want to buy Kitty Kibble Food?
This will use some of your Menagerie Kitty Dollars!

RE: Buying kibble
Do you have it enabled so that you use menagerie K$ on non menagerie items?

RE: Buying kibble
I think the comment is that the warning appeared at all since it can't use 0.

When I first saw this, that was my reaction: "Oh, look, someone else who notices silly little edge condition bugs."

No, I have none of those checkboxes checked.

Perhaps very very few folks have no menagerie $$, so this case hasn't been checked, that's why this bug is there? :-)

RE: Buying kibble
The bug is just like the bug in <large, well-known store's> point-of-sale system, many years ago, when you'd use a store credit to purchase, and, if it came up to exactly zero balance due, and, if the cashier pushed Credit instead of Cash Tendered, would not finish out the sale until putting in a card and waiting for a zero-balance transaction to be authorized. Needless to say, in the Real World, bugs like that get caught and fixed early on because they're just unseemly. But, as a project manager, I absolutely LOVED spending ten or twenty minutes on them, and why alpha-testing is important, at the morning team meeting.
