I further researched this issue, and found that more than two decimal 
places in transactions.total_cost only occured when an order was 

If the third decimal place is 5 or greater, the customer will be 
charged an extra penny than what IC has shown them on their receipt.

Should this be solved with some kind of price formatting, or is this in 
fact a bug in the discount and/or subtotal tag?
