patch with fix

Seems like to be caused by commit 4aa9ca1c35b867fa5a4d94c41591700ca7ab5edb,
(bug #415871).
The patch should solve this bug while keeping what was intended with patch
for #415871 in.

To consider the "round down patch, 4aa9ca1c35b867fa5a4d94c41591700ca7ab5edb" only for the volumes that are described with percent seems OK to me.

I'd go ahead and commit it.
