Thank you, Jeff!   I'll go remove the workaround from my source code
(actually move it to an exception handler).
[For those who don't know -- Jeff has just fixed a work item I originally
reported in 2008.  Somebody by him a beer!]

I would agree that implicit conversions should also be included in the
fix.  Any data which is "decimalish" should be handled as a decimal to
avoid the necessity for the programmer to specify back-and-forth
