Rounding issue generating countours from terrain grid in sub-meter range

I generated contours with a contour interval of 0.1 meter.
The contours appear with labels like 560.19998932 m rather than 560.2 (or 560.29998779 instead of 560.3). Seems to be a rounding problem...

That looks very odd. What can I do?
I´m currently using v16.0.5 / win64

    Hello,

    I recommend getting the latest version of Global Mapper 16.2 to see if this problem has been fixed. If the problem persists, please send a description of your workflow and the results to Blue Marble Geographics Support (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com). This will ensure that the support team sees the problem.

    Cheers,

    Bob

    I upgraded to 16.2.1 and the problem went away :-)
    Something you always hope, which (almost) never happens though.
