I want a problem to have units of rpm. I enter units of rpm and get the
following error message in construction space:

ERROR:Computer's answer is incorrect ("9.24 rpm"). It is likely that the 
tolerance range [8.778, 9.702] or significant figures [2, 5] need to be 

If instead I use m/s^2 it's happy.

If I use ergs, it's not happy.

(1) is this a bug or a new feature? (I thought we used to be able to enter
untabulated units before)

(2) Does the error really flag an error or just a warning? Is the problem
functional with rpm as units?
