However, I'm using the collector interface and there (IIRC) I do not have
the option of choosing the type of math. I'll have another look tonight

Actually, in my case it was simply because I filled in the wrong value for
the denominator of a security, so all the prices in the accounts are with
this wrong denomiator.

I saw this constant used somewhere so I'll have to have another look later.
