I have ran the the master branch as of July 4 through gdb. It doesn't have all the code exactly 
as you pasted in your mail, but it's similar enough IMO.

The line
  gnc_exp_parser_parse (discount, &n, NULL);
sets n to 0 (more strictly {0, 1}, a gnc_numeric). That doesn't seem correct, or at least not what 
you are expecting since discount has a value of "25.0". Maybe you should set an error variable 
instead of NULL in that function call and check its value for more clues.
