Ah, I see. And the good one (math) wins, if its last in the row, so if I
want to use anything the way it is, I can add the math unit as last in
the row or at least after gdk and it'll work as expected in its number

Maybe gdk will have some problems where it is expects float aka single
as parameter and is fed with double or extended...
