The second option is that it's a decimal fraction thing. In any case, it didn't seem to happen for me in higher levels, when you donate bigger sums of money.
Yes, I did notice once I got higher than level 8. Actually, when they get down to zero or less, the problem still pops up unless I donate twice, ie. get them over 5 coppers. No biggie. Thanks for the help. I never get my characters over 21 levels by the way. My ol' mind and reflexes can't take it when it gets higher.
Gah! That reminds me, birthday next month - I turn 67. Wonder if I should start lying and say its the 38th anniversary of my 29th birthday?
