ABAP fails again, on literal/packed to numeric parameters.

Yet another ABAP packed/literal bug:

CLASS cl_test DEFINITION.PUBLIC SECTION.CLASS-METHODS test IMPORTING i_num TYPE numeric.ENDCLASS.CLASS cl_test IMPLEMENTATION.METHOD test.WRITE:/ i_num.ENDMETHOD.ENDCLASS.START-OF-SELECTION.DATA: l_f TYPEdecfloat34." This works correctly: l_f = '10.1231231233'. l_f = '10.12312312334234234'. l_f = '10.12312312334234234345345'." This has some kind of MOD overflow error on packed's maximum decimals of 16: cl_test=>test('10.1231231233')." OK: "10.1231231233" P(16) DECIMALS 10 cl_test=>test('10.12312312334234234')." FAIL: "10.1" P(16) DECIMALS 1 cl_test=>test('10.12312312334234234345345')." FAIL: "10.1231231" P(16) DECIMALS 7
